Well, today was the day that fellow LJ, Mike Lingenfelter, and I got to the milling of that maple log in the next door neighbor’s yard…
After talking the plan of attack out for awhile, we determined that we’d halve the 35-40” diameter log in two, prop ‘em up on edge to mill them. Our reason was simple: the saw, with the 36” bar and 36” milling attachment, would only give us around a 30” wide maximum cut. So, this log was just a bit too big for the equipment. Not to worry…we sliced through the log freehand and and used our sheer brawn to stand the first half up on edge!
A short video of the end of that cut:
Here’s what we saw when we opened it up…
