This is Jeff Perry with a piece of Coast Live Oak from a fallen in tree, in all, of all places, Thousand Oaks, CA. (Would it be wrong to say that there are now 999 Oaks in that town?) Jeff helped resaw the Oak on the chainsaw mill. I think it’s a crazy piece of wood because it looks a lot like a slab of bacon. I think Jeff is crazy, just because he is. I only wish I’d captured his blue steel better. As it is it’s kinda blurry. We cut this wood in May, 2009, and it’s sleeping the long sleep in the woodpile, drying to be ready to use by May, 2012! Eat your heart out, Rip van Winkle.
