In the beginning! this is the MAple stump left i found at work one day. The guy i was cutting this timber for had his a bandsaw mil lso i asked him if he would saw it for me. It was much more reasonably than i expected. Here are the results.
I think there are 6 slabs 2” thick.
If anyone local to me wants one or two let me know. the Pic’s are taken with some water on the boards to help show the variation.
