Due to a glitch in the operation of my RSS scraper program, something
that Andy English posted yesterday was omitted from the Digests, so
I'll repeat it here, in order that it will be picked up in the next one.

Subject: Cherry wood California poppies block
Posted by: Robert Simola

5"x8" cherry woodblock

The poppies may just be starting to grow at my house, but they are blooming in my studio. 

It's been six weeks since I have carved a block using pear wood, and now I know why cherry is used so much more than pear.  I will still use pear as soon as the tendonitis goes away in my carving hand, but I will try to not make the same mistake of carving  it continuously.  In the mean time, cherry is a good substitute.
