Did you ever carve yew wood? Pacific yew?
Its weird. Its not so hard but its ridiculously tough. A drawknife cuts,
but then it wants to

But a scraper? A scraper feels really weird like you are carving some

I was actually sculpting yew with a hand scraper.
Here is what I was making. Has anyone ever seen this tool head? It has a
No idea what the inventor was thinking, maybe a fire tool? I am planning
to use it for close quarter but heavy gardening tasks.
And weird email problems.
Did you ever get a "stuck" piece of email? I had an ordinary auction
listing notice from ebay, that got stuck on my incoming mail server. It
would resend every few minutes and nothing else!?!?? I woke up to 377
copies of the thing.
Meanwhile any new email that came was sitting my snowcrest's server,
and wouldn't download to my computer.
When I finally found the "bad" piece of email on the server, and
deleted it, mail service returned to normal.... just like that.
But why did it happen? Anybody?
