    Default First time working with sycamore

    Business is a bit slow at the moment which allows me to play with the equipment on personal projects. I just finished a sign/fence panel for our VRBO suite. First time working with sycamore, really happy with the colouration!

    Sycamore is very beautiful wood and easy to work. When it has a chance to spalt, the colors really pop.

    Great job! I worked with Sycamore long enough to find out that it has a mind of its own. Purchased 200 feet years ago and stacked it with stick separators. The next day I found it twisted! Angry is not the proper descriptive term...
    Hats off. It looks absolutely beautiful!
