no previous part Part 1 of Stump cutting series no next part

At the garden I dug old stump of Prunus avium. I was there for some years. Summer is here so I decided to divide it to half parts. My friend helped me with sawing by crosscut saw (little blunt). It was very hard work. But after some hours very beautiful timbers shows. I grinded it and soaked with water. You ca see it’s little stained by fungi.

Wow, exactly the colors of that old prunus burl I got back home a few years ago (the thing is twice as big)

Wow that’s really nice. I also like that you used the crosscut saw. I take it you’ve learned to sharpen that yourself?

I sharpened it with file tool, but it was still very hard for sawing. That saw was used for cutting walls :D.
