    I got a toothpick just now from the place I got lunch and it's the longest lasting toothpick I've had. Is it because it's made of a hard wood of some sort? I haven't Googled yet...

    Make sure to check the moisture on a freshly split piece!

    Birch is the most commonly used wood for toothpicks. Bamboo also makes a nice long lasting toothpick.

    Now there will be Craig's list scrounges from restaurant trash cans. Just remember " no pics. It didn't happen".
    Do you cover your wood? Yeah I close the box before the snow flys.
    You got that wood split yet? No but, it's nothing my Fiskers X .005 can't handle.

    Ok I'll stop sorry
