Reminds me of some of the good old folks I've met...a scowl that just barely covers a grin. The true value in all of this is the people we meet along the way, isn't it?

I remember meeting him briefly while at Friendship back about the mid 1970's.

Stop reminding me I'm a packrat!

All this talk of handles I helped a guy haul off a bunch of wild plum he cut down & saved a few straight limbs that I was going to try making hawk handles from, that was 3-4 years ago, I set them in the rafters of my garden shed as they were cut live. . . . I think 3 years in the hot shed should have dried them out

wild plum

Interesting. Never encountered wild plum being used for any kind of wood working project. What are it's characteristics regarding strength and flexibility? And, do show us yer new hawk handle when ye make it.
