    It's wood day- they televise wood chopping/stacking competitions, and celebrate wood. Here's a stack with the king and queen by Ole Kristian Kjelling

    You're probably right!
    There's a big wood festival up in Ridgway, PA, next weekend. Carvers from all over the world will be there, it keeps getting bigger and bigger each year.......I would like to go up to it, but just too much going on here with the house project....:(

    Appears the Norwegians are like the Swiss. I swear wood stacking must be a required course in school in Switzerland. And there is probably a Masters track.

    Every day is wood day for me.I'm either cutting/splitting/stacking it for firewood,milling logs or building things from it in the shop or at a jobsite somewhere around here.

    its amazing that they found wood with ends "just the right color" to do such detailed work....simply amazing...especially the red for the neck tie...what species of wood is so red? Must be norwegian wood.
