Not sure how long I’ll keep up any sort of blogging. This is just the first entry, simply because, otherwise, there’s a silly generic “Hello World” blog entry that just smacks of “noob”.
Since moving to Ocean Shores, WA, in May of 2017, I’ve found it difficult to obtain hardwood from local donors, as there is very little hardwood IN Ocean Shores. There’s just a smattering of Alder and Maple, and quite a bit of small Myrtle and small Crab Apple, and that’s about it.
I’ve had it suggested to scour the beach for driftwood, but having some experience with the effect of embedded sand on turning tools, I’m just a bit reluctant.
But, I’ll keep asking — it’s a small community and word of mouth — what they, here, call the “coconut telegraph” — is quite effective.
