Day 265: Salvage
Tonight a made a trip over to Ahwatukee to salvage some wood that was being cut by APS (one of the local power companies) from under their power lines. Woods include Palo Verde, Mesquite, Acacia, and Ironwood. There may have also been some Texas Ebony but if it was it was long gone by the time I got there.
By my count I have 25 pieces here after cutting in half and ripping some of the larger pieces. I may keep one or two piece of Ironwood, the rest will be headed to the local club or distributed to other club member over the next month or 2.
There's still a bunch of wood out there for others to gather, it's probably 70% Palo Verde which is far fom my favorite wood.
