Hi Everyone

Came across this bright yellow timber the other day. Called Osage
Only got a few little pieces, but it is really nice to work with and that bright yellow really pops. 
Apparently it goes to a chocolate brown after a few months of exposure to oxygen. I waxed it with the Butcher Block wax, so am hoping this seals it. 
The main body timber is Pine. 

Always fun trying out new timbers, I also scored a few pieces of Mulberry. Will give this a go next weekend.

Bob, this is one of John's plans.
Its one of the Spicy Speedsters.
I modified it to be able to put wheels on it. 
The Spicy Speedsters are carpet runners with no wheels.

I thought it looked familiar. There it is at the top rear in the first photo om the plans page. Nice mod I might have to copy it one day.
