Road Trip!

 Good morning,

OK, it was a shopping trip, but it was fun to think we finally could have a road trip.  :)

The wood store is 20 to 30 minutes, depending on traffic one way North of us.  Kjell has a few projects in mind and needed to get a variety of different types of wood to make them.

He carefully selects the wood grains depending the projects he is planning.

There can be huge differences in the grain...

... of the same type of wood.

He selected these four pieces (the horizontal ones) also.  Then he added a few more pieces....

So here is today's haul all loaded in the back of the car.  

And, now the fun begins!

Nice you were able to do a road trip, even if it was for shopping. What is he going to make?

That's some beautiful wood! About four hours away in Albuquerque there is an amazing wood shop, with exotic woods as well as U.S. wood. I love the purpleheart and the zebra, well any unusual wood, really.

Astrid, Kjell is making some kitchen items with the wood he just purchased. When finished, I'll have pictures of them here on the blog and there will be some in the shop, too. :)

I agree, Holly, there are so many beautiful woods. Kjell is working with purpleheart and zebra, among others, right now.
