  1. I recently found out that purpleheart changes colors due to oxides and uv light. I was wondering if anyone has used minwax helmsman spar urethane to stabalize purpleheart. Also how do you tell if the wood is dry enough to stabalize. Thanks, Jake
  2. So the other day when I was taking a walk, I saw for the upteenth time my neighbor's woodpile. Knowing that that wood had been in the same location for several months, I made a guess to say that they weren't going to use it. I ask and was corrrect. Perusing the lot, I found the reason they had to trim the tree: rot. Most of the wood is too rotten to be any good. but the few bits I picked up were alright. These are what I've processed so far. All of it got two hours in the oven at 170 F turned every half hour. The warpage and cracking was minimal since most of the wood was already. What I got thought has me excited for my next handle. Oh one more thing, has anybody used maple bark as a sheath? I'm thinking I could use some birch bark glued to maple bark to make a sheath. Cheers!
