Figuring on This (The Low Workbench)

  A coworker in my office cut down an old pecan tree on his property. There are lots of them around in this part of the country so pecan is not an endangered species. A lot of Texans like to use the wood for smoking barbeque as it imparts a nice flavor. Pecan is a first cousin species to hickor...b2ap3_thumbnail_pecan-1.jpg
