holy smokes that is awesome. do you use all that?

i’m new to milling. how thick to you cut yours, and what are the variables that go into determining thickness?

what do you do to keep slabs from checking and/or warping.

Paul,

What a great video. Kind of reminds me of Nakashima’s walnut storage area? LOL! You’re a busy man, and that’s good. Hope you have a forklift and help.

That’s a ton of lumber; or several tons by the looks of it. Enjoyed the video. How do you find time to work in the shop when there’s so many logs to mill?

I’m moving towards selling dry wide/thick slabs, but yes I do use about 50% of what I currently mill and dry

I cut most “table” slabs at 2.5’’ to 3’’ then I cut everything else standard 8/4 6/4 5/4 4/4

The log will tell me what thickness to cut it at, just have to listen (-:

Keep them out of the sun / rain and stack them on flat ground, more on top of each other the better.

WOW! Holy wood stash batman! Only in my wildest dreams could I imagine having the land and all those logs to mill. You do some great work with the slabs you mill, keep sharing with us. Any chance you can show your kiln setup?
