There's this big ring of wood outside my garage, looks like maybe the previous owner of the place used it for target practice with a bow or something, since it's leaned up against a tree and the bottom was cut to make sure it didn't roll away, got a few shallow gouges in it. Now, the thing has probably been out there for a few years in this glorious, rainy Seattle weather, and it's about 6-8 inches thick, I think. Probably from an evergreen of some sort, and about 3 feet wide at its largest point, if I had to guess. Maybe a tad less. My thought was to take an axe to it, chop out all the wood rot from the part that's been touching the ground, scrape off the moss that's growing on the underside, and roll it into the garage, since I've got this extra space I'm not using. Any way this wood could be useable for, say, a guitar body? It's definitely gotta be planed, considering it doesn't look like it even came out of its tree plainly, but I think it's from some big ass pine, or at least one of the many types of evergreens that live around here and just fall over on the side of the road all the time. Would it be of any use any time soon? Or is this a piece that'd have to sit for years before I could do anything with it? As it is, I could go buy a bow and take up where the last guy left off, but I like guitars more than I think I'd enjoy archery, and even if I have to buy every other bit, I think I'd like to at least take a go at making a guitar body, even if it's nothing pretty.
