Imported Canadian Dyar wood arrives at the new home. This old man put this very heavy wood inside. We paid him extra for his efforts

Might have paid the donkey some extra too for his hard work. A fresh hay stack maybe

Got to learn a lot about good wood. As you can see there are no 'Gaanths' on this wood. Its those circular patterns on wood. This assures that the wood is strong. Also the wood should not be too soft or too hard. This wood is also chemically treated against termites and wet weather
