I just split out a couple of Red Oak leg blanks and worked on one with the draw knife. It makes for an easy decision, the Red Oak is so much easier to work than Honey Locust the legs will be Red Oak.
I have several 8/4 Honey Locust boards that have been hanging around in the wood pile for several years. I keep thinking I can find some use other than the fire pit for 'em but no joy. The shame is once finished it is a pretty wood. The problem is getting there is not worth the effort. The good news at least one of 'em is split and sized to burn, the bad is there are at least 3 or 4 more to go.
