Thank you Florence


We live in south eastern North Carolina. A few years ago when Florence came through we lost a lot of trees. I tried to salvage the pecan by rough cutting slabs with my chainsaw. Foolish I know but my determination was strong. This is just a simple coat rack but it works for us. I learned that pecan is a true hard wood and it will dull a chain quickly. I used a spokeshave to get a lot of the rough stuff off and then sanded it. Finished with a simple wood wax


Oh my :(
sorry for the devastation…. but out of the damage came this!

I love it; love the look of it and the story behind it.

The story of that piece should be attached to (or woodburned into) the back of the board so the story can live on.

There will be more to come. The wood has dried out enough I believe
