Drought 2011-make lemonade from lemons.
 
Morning folks.

Everyone knows how bad it was. I lost 1000's of trees. I harvested what I could for use.

Lately I decided to redo some buck knives. These are the results...

Buck 110 and 112 set. Post oak scales, rear bolster removed, buffalo horn accent and a post oak landing net.

These porch rails also came out of the drought. I had treated 4X but wanted something more rustic. They are also ERC. I had to turn the Bottoms into 4X4 so they would fit in the existing holes. This pic was before I trimmed and sculpted the tops.

And some cedar benches... 8' long but much lighter than the PO benches. I have since split the termite blocks, half under each foot. I have 11 of these scattered around.

I don't ever want to go through that drought again but it did give me something to do. :)
