    • it's a nice piece, and getting better as I dig in deeper, as I am finding with a lot of fatwood.

      The black resin still fascinates me.

            • Fatwood Friday is here again, mixing it up again and doing old stores, found some more fatwood that I had put away. Happy fatwood Friday everyone.

                • mate have a look at the bacon, I could eat that.

                  I would give my left arm to be able to harvest fatwood like that.

                  It's interesting to see that black resin on some of it, I have the same phenomenon.

                  Are you interested in selling any of that premo fatwood, Warrick?

                    Dean, Not really. I have been sort of selling it by including some with knife purchases that come with ferro rod and strikers. As we've discussed before, thanks to Bunnings there's no money in it to make selling worthwhile on its own.

                    • I have to admit the Bunnings and Big W fatwood is pretty good, I've had no complaints. It's not anywhere near as good as the stuff you just showed but still, it's good quality fatwood with reasonable resin content.

                      The Bunnings example is pretty good value too, a 1.8kg bag for $14 and I'm pulling out a heap of cores from the bags I've bought.

                      It certainly allows blokes like me who don't get the opportunity to harvest fatwood to fool around with it.

                        • cores to date, some of the ones on top are pure resin and the best fatwood I have ever seen and I can't see how you could saturate the wood any further.

                          All of these come from Bunning fatwood.
