Post Apple wood for carving or ??
Today I cut down a 25 year old decorative crab apple tree (it produces crab apples about 1/2" diameter). But as I was cutting I thought maybe there is some woodworker out there who would want to make something out of the main trunk section. So I cut it off above the main trunk, to keep it "alive". If someone wants it I will cut it off at the ground.

The trunk is about 10" diameter. At about 4' it forks. Total height about 5'.

I have done woodcarving with apple wood in the past, it is beautiful to work with. But I don't have time for woodcarving right now.

I could bring it to the scion exchange in March, or you could drop by (Camas), or meet me at lunchtime at work (west Vancouver).

If I don't get any takers in the next week or so, I'll just set it aside and maybe do something with it someday.

Dave

Or you could start smoking some pork! Apple smoke is second only to plumwood smoke.

...just don’t use a chainsaw with an automatic oiler to make your chips … my dad and uncle learned oil and fish don’t mix! My brother began running pieces of apple wood through his table saw with a ..wide spacer blade on (I can’t remember it’s name) then collected the shavings for smoking. Much better 8)

Yes, a dado blade ~ it seemed to make powder out of the apple wood but apparently it smoldered well enough to ‘not ruin’ my dad and uncle’s next batch of smoked fish. The shame with their previous ‘oil mistake’ was that they’d used a homemade smoker that held up to eight salmon… After discovering their need, my brother began saving/ producing alder and cherry as well ...don’t think they ever used plum, even for fun :P

Just getting around to posting a photo. I put a couple of 1-gallon pots next to it for scale.

Thanks for the smoker suggestions, but I don't have a smoker.

1. Preburn a tin can (Gets all the glue and varnish gone)
2. Load with lengths of apple wood cut to fit
3. Cover top of can with foil or lid from a bigger can
4. Toss on coals of your summer BBQ
5. Admire copius smoke generated
6. Decline neighbors offer to call the fire department.
