Thank you for the comment. I would say it is more in the woodworker and less in the wood. The Aspine was easy enough to work with, but "I" have learned from the process. I tend to force fit things (so to speak) the wood did not take to that.
Aspen pine or aspen part of the poplar family? I have some aspen, poplar kind, from the Rocky Mountains, that I milled up for myself and it's dry enough to start using. Curious. Cheers. TJ
