Grilling Plank

Grilling PlankI'm more of a furniture maker, but just thought I'd share this with y'all. I purchased some Red Grandis for a furniture project. Most of the wood was acceptable with a bit of work … no big deal. However, there was a 2 ft piece that was giving me grief. I would flatten it to and within a day or so it would twist. I flattened it a bit more and after another day or so … more twist. My last try I flattened it to a thickness … and it was flat. That is until 2 days later that twist showed up. I live in California… there is no humidity nor rain obvious by the fires.My wife has been asking for a grilling plank. I have the perfect one. These are normally cedar, but I've seen them made of maple, walnut, & oak so why not Red Grandis. I washed it and soaked it for about 4 hours and then an additional 30 minutes in white wine (the cheapest I could find). Then gave it to my wife. That salmon was the best we've had in a long time.Try it sometime.

Office Desk build! (Video Link attached)I built an office desk for my girlfriend. Its a pretty simple design and was all done with minimal tools. It is incredibly sturdy and would recommend this to anyone that is looking to build their own desk. It was about $100 or less in materials if I remember correctly.Here's a link to the video where you can watch the build: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rqPTza_L-8&t=186sEnjoy!
