    Default Ash rounds

    well seasoned, in various sizes

    What do I do with them? they are there for my fuel...but many are too good for that.

    Is this a good turning wood?

    Does anyone want any?

    Sadly if their already seasoned and in the round they will be no good for bow staves, if you fins some nice long straight pieces that are fresh and with large grain spacing let me know. I'll make you a longbow for every 4 i make in return out of the wood provided, although i'll leave the finishing, oiling and sanding ect to you so you can make it come out in its true colours.

    spoons and kuskas, Tengu, may I purge one from you, you can give it to me at the moot, cheers the interceptor boy.
    nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.

    Make tent pegs Tengu, like I showed you at the last moot. Ash is perfect for tent pegs. Do it now and you can flog them when you get there. If you have any 12" - 18" pieces, they will make perfect tent pegs for the moot site because of the soft sandy soil. The shorter pieces (6" or so) will be good for staking out tarps, while the long ones are good for ridge lines and areas under stress.
