“I do not particularly like the word ‘work.’ Human beings are the only animals who have to work, and I think that is the most ridiculous thing in the world. Other animals make their livings by living, but people work like crazy, thinking that they have to in order to stay alive. The bigger the job, the greater the challenge, the more wonderful they think it is. It would be good to give up that way of thinking and live an easy, comfortable life with plenty of free time. I think that the way animals live in the tropics, stepping outside in the morning and evening to see if there is something to eat, and taking a long nap in the afternoon, must be a wonderful life. For human beings, a life of such simplicity would be possible if one worked to produce directly his daily necessities. In such a life, work is not work as people generally think of it, but simply doing what needs to be done.”
― Masanobu Fukuoka, The One-Straw Revolution

    Wow! I really like the spalted sycamore. Never tried to work sycamore what does it compare to for workability?

      Orepass,
      I would have to compare it to maple in its workability,a fairly tight grain that interlocks and when quartersawing it, the figuring is equally impressive. Although the same semi-rotting process that leads to the creation of the beautiful spalting process that takes place also makes the wood a little softer or “punky”.

We took a walk along the creek tonight. I came to this conclusion: it's all about perspective.
