It started life as a cypress fence post, and it became a stack of potential book covers.


That should keep me busy for a while. The wood has to dry before I can do much with it, so it might be a while before I get to do anything with these.

Selecting timber is tricky. I want wood with a bit of character, but since I’m hand splitting these, “character” translates to “won’t split straight”.


Some of these might not make it into books, but they sure make for a pretty stack of wood.
