I can hear the jokes already….
But seriously, any woodworker knows that different woods have different fragrances. “Fragrance” is a word that often seems associated with a smell one find pleasant while “smell” is often associated with a smell that might just be a smell, for better or for worse.
The inspiration for this post came moments ago while cutting the binding channel on a dulcimer made of Adirondack spruce and big-leaf maple with walnut linings.
Suddenly the shop smelled like chocolate!
While each wood has a distinctive fragrance I had never worked that combination simultaneously; what a discovery!
If not for the heavy snow falling at the moment I would be on my way to get some chocolate!
