3 Thoughts to “Episode – 3 Favorite Woods”

  1. Enjoyed the episode, but boxwood is not the same as box elder. It sounded a lot like there was some confusion asking if boxwood has the red streaks through it. Box Elder is in the maple family.
    This episode was good because I kept wanting to raise my hand and add my own input. Perhaps on the podcast social media, ask questions that’ll revolve around the next episodes?

    If you’re looking for Osage orange or pecan let me know and maybe we can work out a trade. I’m in Oklahoma and plan on being at the event in June. Enjoy the podcast keep up the good work.

      Awesome! I’m down to do some trading! Hopefully I’ll have a lot of desert hard woods with me for turning and trading. – Braxton
