show us the staves and billets  )W(
Well, it's not much of a haul, but here's what I got (the 5 on top).  They range from about 50" to 76".  It's mostly pretty thin and crooked.  The one large stave might work out if I can shave down below the woodpecker damage.  The others might end up as kids' bows.
