    Bl##dy thing is full! Though if you want to send me free wood I might consider building another wood store?


    Two nice pieces from the firewood pile especially the Berberis, will it keep that colour
    Unfortunately no.
    It will go a quite pleasing Orange/Brown but will lose the Yellow. I've found that Berberis root is more colourfast than the upper bits and makes good pen blanks if you can cut it before it splits. Mahonia is about the same colour but holds on to it longer. Shame they are shrubs though, this bowl is massive for Berberis!

    I can't decide whether to be a good example, or a horrible warning!

    Sounds like Cherry splits very easy

    As for the wood store like you mine is full to the point that I still have logs to cut but still can't find the right wood for a project.
