I'm a high school senior. Planning to major in Secondary Education as a Shop teacher at Wayne State College.To what level of school are you referring? We have several high school and young college age members.
I'm glad to hear I'm not the only high schooler. I don't know how much of my knowledge you guys wouldn't already know, but I'm eager to learn from all of youWe have several high school and young college age members. We like it when we see younger generations getting into the craft. I hope you will hang around and learn (and share your own knowledge!) and participate frequently.
I am not the guy you asked the question of, but hackberry it a very hard wood. Planes and turns well, heavy and dense. It does not stain well (kinda like hard maple). It is also cool spalted. Cut fresh it dries very white. Another overlooked hardwood, too often used for railroad ties. Interlocking grain, great for fine joinery or utilitarian use. I would trust and 8/4 hackberry board to hold 2X the weight of and oak one. And it is pretty really.Quick question. What do you use hackberry for?
