Was back at the lumbermill again. At the lumbermill I found a piece of wood that looked like I imagined that mine would look. That is pine with bark. So I made this image with the left part showing what I thought I would have and the right showing what I got.
Spent a few hours making grooves, but was unable to complete the task. I had planned to take my little brother skiing tomorrow, but looks like I have to spend that time at the lumbermill instead. Tomorrow is the last day I can spend at the lumbermill. I’ll be taking my new and “shiny” wood on a four hour drive back home.
