Coffee shop wisdom is January of 2021 as I understand it. I wonder where the wood comes from on the stick builts? Probably cottonwood like the high class furniture frames.😜

The famed mosquito bombers of World War two were built of Sitka spruce which came from British Columbia. The really big Sitkas are getting difficult to acquire. I woodn’t know that but I was a forestry student back in the day. Wood Tech 380
was tough.

Wasn't the Spruce Goose built that way also?

I think my friend Howard got the spruce for his plane out of the pacific NW, USA. The tree grows all the way from Redwood
Country in Northern California up into Alaska all along the coast. We were in the redwoods a couple years ago and saw a couple signs pointing out the Sitka Spruce.
They are huge and the really big ones are pretty old. I’ll drive quite a ways off the beaten path to look at timber trees that I had to learn in school but never saw in person. We had a lot of Engelmann spruce where we worked in Idaho and the fresh cut limbs really smelled good when the buckers and limbers were cutting on them. Now most of the old growth on public land is protected but we won’t discuss that as right or wrong. Too political.

Watch it folks. Banter is fine, just don't let it stray into politics.

Forestry 300 for me, including lectures saying how good clear cutting was.

"Characteristics of Wood" for me, in a furniture making, not a forestry, program at a vocational college. Probably a different curriculum, since we were more concerned with sawmill practices and kiln drying techniques than clear cutting or forestry management.

You learn the damnedest things. I turned a mallet out of lignum vitae at one point. That stuff will dull an edge in no time. The longest production cycle of any managed timber in the world is some high altitude spruce somewhere in Austria or Northern Italy used for piano soundboards. Over 100 years, IIRC. Or maybe the instructor was just blowing smoke up our collective skirt. And so on. Interesting.
