My fingers are falling off.

Okay, so I've learned something today: There's a reason it's called desert Ironwood. That shit is HARD. Sawing for a good 15 minutes and I've sawed through all of 4" of it. Good golly, and it's not easy, either.

@Grimsy: Yes, I'll be posting a finished product on here, sooner or later!

@Dan: Hopefully I'll be able to get one done this weekend. Right now I'm cutting the wood (obviously,) and after that it's a matter of shaping, sanding, and epoxying. There won't be any pins, but with how strong epoxies are these days, they're more of an aesthetic than anything else.

Wellp, back to sawing and killing my fingers.

  3. Ironwood is worse when it's still part of a tree. I had to help cut off and move a large branch of it last year. Thorns EVERYWHERE.

  16. I suggest using a chain saw or reciprocating saw, whatever you are more comfortable with. to make the general shape and then whittle the rest.
