I’d love to get these, but conifers don’t really call to me like the angiosperms. The wood is usually soft and sappy, and I grew up surrounded by pine. It’s what everything decorative and utilitarian was made from, so I’m a little burned out on it.
Now these, they call to me through sheer size. I think most of that is 3’ diameter or better. I’d love to have a nice portable band mill and a flatbed, and an MS 880 STIHL Magnum™ Chain Saw with a 59 inch guide bar. I’d cut some rounds for circular table tops, then slab the rest for rectangular table tops, all natural edge wherever the bark wasn’t screwed up, with decoratively rounded edging wherever it was. Any thoughts as to how many table tops could be made out of these 3 chunks, and what they might run if all sold? Obviously grain and other things will vary the price, but I’d love to hear any ballpark guesses.
