« Part 7: The First Slabbing Cut Part 8 of Lumber Making series Part 9: The Second Half »

After the slabbing cut, we continued to cut the first half of the log. Here’s a short video of Mike on the saw…

. After a few cuts we hit a nail…pulled the saw out and cut from the other end…chipped a tooth but nothing really terrible; the chain was still relatively sharp, so we continued to cut!

Sorry to string it out, but it takes a while to upload everything and put the blog together, with only so much time on my hands…Thanks for checking this out!

Looks like the video isn’t playing for me. You might want to check that, unless it’s working for other people.

Great wood. Nice job on the cutting. Yes all local trees have nails. I know Dad put a 24” bolt through a walnut tree that split. That would mess up a blade.

Dorje you should have some real fun with that wood, or should I say you and Mike will have some real fun. If you find yourself in a jam and don’t have enough space to store it all, I’ll be glad to store some for you :-))

Rome wasn’t built in a day, we can wait! Some T.V. shows make you wait a week to see what happens next. LOL

Don’t point him to Gizmodyne. We’ll have pictures of wood drying, next.

-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.

I’m enjoying the “piece at a time” .... (I think Dusty started this—we like suspense!)

THAT is some really interesting wood. Lucky that wasn’t a 12 inch spike.

I’m with Brad and Tom Angle. There’s gotta be a table top in there somewhere. I hope it does dry without any twist or unmanageable warp. Thanks for keeping us in the loop.
