Question Bargain Ducks

Went shopping at the local Discount, bargain basement shop yesterday. In a bin, I found two duck decoys, ($1.39 ea), made in China. Decided they were worth the block of wood there made from. brought them home, used my foredom with sanding drum and cleaned the paint from them, did a little shaping, and they are starting to look OK. Don't know what kind of wood they are made from though. Would they have a type of basswood in China?? Seems a lot harder than bass wood.

Probably wood from here in Canada.......LOL. A lot of ship loads of prime timber goes over, and then we buy it back as furnature, do-dads, and what ever. Damm shame.

If you paid $1.39 for them, Just think what the carver and painter in China made from them.

Yep Bob, It is a shame.
Once the Japanese imported our steel from us, Just to turn around and use it on us.

History repeats itself. If ya don't think so then,,,, well,,,,, I will leave that alone for Now!
