    I have seen old hellenic vases from kreta with pictures of people leaping over bulls. Had no idea it was still done today. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/dXAk91PltMI" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    We are falling smallish oaks. Normally this would be a job for a mechanical harvester, but since we we are already there, and it is a small job, they let us loose on it instead of going to the trouble and cost of bringing a machine in. That is so relaxing compared to the big stuff we normally fall. Got a call today from a forester who needed 500 cubic meters of large spruce and fir cut for shipping to China. That'll be fun, too.

    Hate what CA has become. Anyway. It is not just the immigrants. A lot of it is policy for aid. We still have a rash of folks that are homeless or just plain lost about everything and are under employed. Remember that bubble thingy not so many years ago when real estate crashed and people lost home on bad loans. Yeah, we are still feeling that here. Look up homeless in SF or LA. Plenty of news there. A lot of industry has fled the state as well since it is so expensive to have a business here.

    Nope, not antifreeze which is Ethylene glycol. What you use is poly ethylene glycole. What it does is entering the cell structure and leaving a residue on the inside of that, which keeps the structure intact keeping the wood from shinking as it dries. So no checks or splits. Works well on smaller stuff, but it is an expensive solution and if the wood is later heated, the PEG melts and starts seeping out. So when your mother in law puts the beautiful bowl that you made for her on top of the radiator, problems will enuse, unless you used a drip proof lacquer. I'e experimented, but didn't like it. it works well if you want to preserve a full "cookie" section of a log, without it splitting.

    Telling it like it is and hating is two different thing IMO.

    stig replied to a thread Today I Learned... in Odds and Ends
    There are constantly folks here who try to sell the removal as a do it yourself for wood turners. Quite funny. 2-3 years ago a group of turners hired me to take some do it yourself trees like that down for them. I just put them on the ground, they did the clean up and kept the wood. Big size walnuts. They were quite happy about paying me.

    Spaying it with one of the parraffin based wood coating products like " Arbor seal" is the easiest way. It can be applied with a paint brush, too. I'm currently preparing a bunch of turning wood for a Norwegian turner, who will come down to pick it up in spring, in exchange for a lot of vacuum packed dried fish. The doggies love that. I'm sealing the whole lot with Arbor seal. Bob, if you want to dry burl bowls fast, then rough turn them to a couple of inches thick, toss them in pure alcohol ( Moonshine will work!) for a forthnight, then air dry them. Goes real fast and they usually don't chaeck.

    As I recall; you made cash arrangements, had the procedure done and paid it out right, only to receive another bill you had to dispute.

    Yup! You have to visit to understand it. Or grow up around it or live there. Some of those streets are beyond steep. They laugh at 8% grades. I bet people blow equipment motors from oil starvation on some of them.
