A little extra eucalyptus score.

A local tree service dumped a bunch of eucalyptus behind my shop in an empty lot. I asked I I could have some and they said no problem. The only problem I have now, is what to do with it all. Should be a great test of my Glaser arsenal of tools on the way. Now if I can only get my hands on that American Beauty lathe I've oogled over for so long.

That looks like RED Eucalyptus.
I acquired some last year. It is very hard as it dries. But it is very nice

Nice score!
Purty stuff.

I've got a couple small segmented pieces to try to get done for X-Mas and then I have jury duty on Jan 3rd. Then the consumer electronics show in LV from the 6th to the 10th. After all that I'll chop it up into smaller sizes andget some on the lathe.
I've always tried to work to live but lately its been living to work.
