The aroma of wood
#11
  
LOML requested I create a 2' x 4' frame so I pulled a chunk of 5/4 QS clear white pine off the rack and headed to the jointer. As the cutterhead engaged the wood the aroma of the pine filled the air. Sweet, maybe a little tart, fresh, clean and inviting. Almost as though the wood was reaching out to me. 

I had to stop and inhale. Relax. Think. Relish shop time. 

Enjoying life with wood. And sawdust.

To me it's sassafras.
I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

Love the aroma of pine also, but not what it does to my tools! Walnut is my favorite. I have a piece of sassafras Roy Underhill gave me. Love that smell too. Cocobolo smells like cinnamon when I'm turning it, but the dust is pretty nasty, so I wear a mask when turning. Zebrawood is the opposite. Smells like a wet dog. Ugh! Cedar is another nice one.
