    Almost completed my current project, so the timing is great. Both from the same limb. And before you ask, it's a Crete Myrtle.

      Nice and symmetrical forks Sammy, can’t wait to see them finished brother! [emoji16]

      Are you positive they’re Crepe Myrtle (?).....doesn’t look like the normal ones I see here in GA, ours have no bark and pretty much a slick, shiny appearance to them.

      Just curious [emoji848][emoji1690]

      Not 100%. That’s what the “picture This” app said. [​IMG]

      Sammy, I know what the app says. However, I think that is what we call around here a Wax Myrtle. Still a great wood for a sling! I have a bunch of it ready to shape, just need to get busy.

      Try the "Seek" app. I use it a lot too. Sometimes the apps are spot on, sometimes not.

      Seek app also identified this as a crape myrtle. Just for information

      A lot of time the app just says diocot family and leave it to your guess.

      I'm anxious to see what you do with these. I've never tried stain or anything else.
      I usually just do BLO. All look good, and the one you stained looks awesome.

      Nice, I need to try stain on my next one. I like how it adds character to the grain. Your clear coat looks great too.
