yay! i found wood!

i am almost done with my toys for donation. i just have the ones with wood left to do i looked at Lowes for some pine and they didn't have much. i just went to home depot and they had half and aisle of pine boards! i got 2 with only a few knots that i will cut out. when those are done i will be making 2 threads, one with individual pictures of the toys that i made and one with all the things i am donating to the bird rescue in a few pictures

My grey and senegal can chew thru a whole pine tree a day. Pine wood is too soft for greys and senegals but they love it..tho I do wish I can find harder wood for their strong beaks

You could get all different kinds but I like that the white pine is kind of soft.

Oak is a stronger wood, but sometimes the soft wood is more fun for the birds.

From what I understand, it is unsafe if you're giving branches off the tree--the leaves and bark are no good, but I don't think it refers to the wood.

Sounds good. I was just thinking about the wood type in general, like what you would use to make furniture....
