Any one have a suggestion on how to use these instead of firewood. I wanted them in 8’ sections but the cut them into rounds. A total of about 10,000 lbs

Do you know any wood turners that need some bowl blanks? Looks like a lot of bowls hiding in those chunks to me.

Slice them into blocks and boards, let them dry and figure out from there.

I have a lot of figured red and white oak slabs I cut out of 2’ rounds. It might take a couple of years for them to dry but they’ll be beautiful when the makes doors and drawers of panels or even boxes!
