This is a beautiful piece of wood. In your shoes, I would love the job as well. Heck, I love cutting into wood myself too but cant do too much as my back won’t let me. I envy you when you open the logs up and see the marvels within.

P.S. Love your truck!

It’s not as spectacular as some of the wood you cut, but if there were wood porn magazines, it would still rate a feature photo spread…

How thick are the slabs you cut and how do you dry them?

Pretty piece of sawdust. I could think of a few dozen projects that I could dull some blades with it. After you’re done cutting it to manageable pieces, have someone drive that pretty truck with the pieces on over to my place, I’m sure I could manage, it would be difficult, be someones got to do it.

Seriously nice – good catch!

Beautiful wood. I could make a lot of boxes out of that! I have seen the truck up close. Way too much truck for me, but it seems to suit Greg and his wood!!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

It defies belief how you find these things! Man, that is one nice bunch of lumber. I almost feel like I am insulting it, calling something that nice by a simple word like “lumber”.
