MORESUN Timber Tidbits

Fall has kept us busy dodging rain and raising multiple frames.

We've worked in some beautiful places, at nearby lakes and in the mountains, and both shops are full of timbers and sawdust.

Here's a look at some of what's been happening ~

Did You Know?

Have you ever heard of a sandbox tree, also known as the dynamite or monkey-no-climb tree? The Hura crepitans is a tropical tree from South America. Covered in sharp spines, the tree's thick red sap is toxic, causing rashes and temporary blindness if it gets in your eye. And then to top it off, there's the explosive seed reproductive strategy, violently sending its small gourd-like fruit through the air at a speed up to 155 mph. Look out below! One source noted "It is a tropical species which can also be kept as a houseplant." Um, no thanks.
