Ash burl & fat wood
The late summer heat is much worse than usual.
Going to my private natural bathtub
near my place of work, I find
a ash tree's burl.
It is smaller than I want.
But it is suitable to small kuksa.
It is as hard as a rock,
I saw away over ten minutes.
I'm a bit concerned about grubbing up it.
The grain of wood...
This will transform to the like of above kuksa.
It will be a time-consuming job.
I make some fat woods for winter camping :
linseed oil (90%),
turpentine oil (10%)
