Hidden beauty in old mulberry

Hidden beauty in old mulberry









A client wanted an old mulberry log made into boards so it could be taken to a relative in Colorado to use in woodworking projects. The log had been on the ground for quite a while and they didn’t think it would be worth it. And while it’s better to mill sooner than later so you don’t loose some volume, most logs will still provide great character wood.

I knew this log had some character wood hidden inside, along with a little unusable wood, and … ants. I didn’t know it had ants.  So the drying stack was set away from other wood. Under a bean head on an old combine.

If you have a log sitting, waiting, please elevate it off the ground to reduce decay and limit insect participation.
