How Much Wood Could a Woodchuck Chuck?

If a Woodchuck could chuck Wood?!

Oh, we're off to a great start, aren't we? Did you know that "woodchuck" is just another name for Ground Hog? No, neither did we, or we may have chose this theme back in February.

But really, this is more about the WOOD part.
There are hardwoods that we use to make furniture or build a good fire.

Green wood is a young, juicy sapling that will soon grow into a great tree, but is pretty useless for fire-building.

Mostly, wood used to be a tree.

Now it can be a wall.
It's quite fashionable right now for homes to sport reclaimed barnwood. So you have trees that used to be barns. What was once outstanding in it's field is now inside!

And of course, there's the fence, too!

 There's a Zentangle angle for tangly people everywhere! This is art by Rhonda:

Then there's Tanglewood:

And all this time we thought you said, "wood duck."


Show us your wood twinchies! Any artform is accepted, just keep it to 2 x 2 inches (or about 5 centimeters). 
Send your artwork by 2PM Arizona Time, Tuesday, May 3, 2016 to
1xeritas@gmail.com along with blog links or notes of inspiration. 
We'll post the results later the same day.
