I had two elm logs left that I pulled off the bank on the side of my house. They are both about 2 feet long. One of them I cut up tonight and I was happily surprised. I tried a different technique this time which I’ll cover when I break down the other log. I am very happy with the yield. Each slice is about 1/2 inch thick and the narrowest is just under 2 inches. The others are about 2-1/2 in. The log was about 4 in. in diameter.
