This stave has twist coming out of the right fade and a small hump there that has been a challenge but I am slowly going to get it to where it needs to be. This was a sawed stave instead of hand split which does not help. You can save a-lot of wood with a saw but it also can cause you a-lot of head aches when it doesn't follow the natural grain. Stick with hand split staves if you can. Dean

Amen to that Dean.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.
