I got some juniper a while back from Sycamoray. Been slowly working through it, milling it into flat boards, mostly between 1/2 and 1/4 inch thick for a future project.
It looks pretty good off the saw, but it’s slow going. Today I bent one of my planer blades hitting a knot in the juniper, and then spent the rest of the morning doing maintenance work in the shop (dust collector and air filter were full too, and everything needed a good sweep). But I’ve got a couple dozen boards now, most of which will square up between 2 and 3 inches wide.
Here’s a bowl turned from the same stuff in December 2021 (so just about 18 months ago).
The reddish brown darkens, but still maintains some red, and the whitish sapwood yellows a bit. But overall, I think it’s pretty stuff, and I’m excited to get to work with it later this summer.
