I have some seasoned with the bark on sugar maple and green ash blanks. They all have a crook or natural handle. They were my son's project. I am moving and they go. Most are 6 feet or so long and all have a chunk of the root to form a handle.
Just joined this forum to move the blanks. The idea came from a fellow on a lapidary site. He said it would be a shame to waste them. I have to agree. Open to offers and ideas or trades.
I could post pics if needed.
Thank you for your interest.
