A bit over 4 years ago while going to our local Family History Center one evening I spotted a large stack of wood on the curb in front of a house on Crestview Ave.
On the way back home I stopped to see what the wood was and as soon as I recognized what it was put all I could in the back of the car, and went back early the next morning to rescue the rest of it.
Most of this I have turned and sold, but still have a couple of pieces left.
I decided to see what was inside one of the remaining pieces and this is what I found:
Norfolk Island Pine is amazing as after I have finished turning and sanding it I place it in a bucket full of Walnut Oil and let it soak for a few days. Once it is saturated with oil the wood slowly becomes translucent.
