    Default Madrona!!!

    So I burned a ton of fire wood this winter, I am guessing 3 cords of fir, alder etc etc. This friend of my Dads gives me about 9 logs of Madrona, he is treating it like its gold or something. I am like cool what ever its firewood.

    So I am almost out of fir and alder, I have a good bed of coals going and I throw on a piece of this Madrona. I shut my wood stove down so it just simmers, I kid you not this log burned for 5 hours!!!!!!!!

    I decided to try again last night, I did the same thing. Good bed of coals and put on a log of Madrona. This log was still smoldering this morning when I got up!!

    I am thinking I need about a cord of this stuff so I check craigslist and a few other sites. They want like $500 a cord!!!

    Best firewood ever!!

    Dude, you didn't know? This stuff is magical. Hardest wood you can find. Also called Laurel. It's all over S. Oregon and if you own property, you'll have some on it by default. Everybody burns it there. Burns HOT too! Even better than Maple or any other hardwood you can get up here. I get a mix of Ash/Fir/Maple every year. Sometimes some white oak, which is also good, but not AS good as Laurel.

    I do, yes. Apple, Alder, Cherry, Hickory and Mesquite mostly. Sometimes some oak.

    Most of the fish I smoke is an apple/alder mix, about 60/40.

    I might quit smoking fish though... I'm quitting chewing. I LOVE sitting out there with some beer, some bourbon, and a big fat fuckin DIP!!! Fuck it all anyway! Quit smoking 6-7 years ago, picked up chewing to replace it. Now I gotta quit that. Life sucks my balls right now. I'm about half way through the step two patches. I can't imagine not chewing while smoking my goods. Yep! Life's sucking my balls!!!

    Dude, seen......you get it, man. You absolutely get it.

    You just planned my Friday night. I'm calling an old friend, we're going down to his vacant property, and I'm starting a fire. I'm sitting on the tailgate, I'm sipping on something, and I'm listening to Candlebox or Bob Segar or Waylon F'ing Jennings or, or, damn Eddie Money, I don't care, something, and I'm going to listen to the wood popping, and I'm going to stare at that fire, and set off fireworks and hit some golf balls and just sit there and sip, until about four in the morning. I need it. I miss it. It is good.

    You....f'ing.....get it.

    So, maybe the (not so) obvious question...how does Madrona wood sound in a guitar? Anyone tried it?

    It warps and "moves" too much to be used for making instruments. you can't even make furniture with it really.

    seen, the next fire you set - er, "start" - throw that dip(shit) into it. Do it for the alpacas. For your wife and kids. Maybe even for yourself.

    But mainly for the alpacas.
