What can one make from such thin wood? I have no idea yet. Boxes, perhaps? It will plane smooth on both sides at 1/4 in. if I can keep it drying flat. Wide thin boards tend to curl and cup.
The box above is one I just finished as a wedding gift.
I have been having regular visits from feral hogs, caught on camera but not in the trap. The boar shown in the photo above, taken last night, is about 32 inches high and would weigh about 250 lbs. I can tell the height by counting the squares in the fence each of which are 4 in. These creatures are incredibly destructive and reproduce at a frantic pace.
This is an unpleasant process and at this point we've trapped and killed 35. We will likely be forced to continue to trap hogs for years to come or allow them to overrun our home and destroy our forest.
Make, fix, create, and increase the likelihood that others learn likewise.
