Re: Strange shavings

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
The shavings are nothing to do with buffing the edge. Note that the veneer attached to this walnut substrate makes a normal looking shaving. The shaving is a result of some unusual property of this piece of wood. When compiling a theory include that the veneer came from the second log from this tree and the plastic looking shaving from the first log.
