Today my friends from California Hardwood Products, here in Auburn, delivered a large block of wood I asked them to create for me. There were 42 basswood planks I asked them to glue together. The finished size is 22 inches deep by 36 inches wide by 5 feet high. They said this is the first time that they put a log back together. They think I’m a little crazy.
The block weighs over 700 pounds and actually will be much stronger than a log and will hold together well. Can’t wait to start carving. First I must come up with a concept.
