I got this from my last load to California. Cutting into it there is lots of marbling for some nice gun stock.
Oh what Fun!

It should be interesting to see the grain when you cut this one.

That is a serious chunk of wood. It will be interesting to see the grain!

You know after taking another look, this log looks like a giant burnt marshmallow. Maybe it’s just too late in the evening . . . but I happen to like my toasted marshmallows burnt.

Have you cut into this yet???
