I opened up a pretty large mulberry today and knew on the first cut this was going to be interesting.
So I cut a little deeper.
Flipped it over…and urban logging strikes again. 2 screws, oh well there was plenty of good lumber under them.
Yea those are 21” wide mulberry boards with figure. Kinda weird birdeye/burl clusters, pretty. Mulberry is very pretty anyway. It darkens to the color of aged black cherry as it dries. It is much more attractive dry.
Not a bad stack of 4/4-6/4 and 8/4. Those 8/4×21” x 8’ wet boards were heavy fresh sawn ! I also got a little pile of live edge flitches from the saw down to a cant that I did not take a picture of.
It is so hard to capture what the figure looks like. The sun washed out the color while it was on the mill…and the flash washed it out in this picture. Just gonna have to trust me I guess…it looks better in person.
