Started working on my Live Oak Log today,

This is some of the heaviest wood I’ve ever dealt with, just moving it by myself is a challenge.
Good thing I have a riding mower and trailer , not to mention the adjustable roll around shop table
to be able to get it up on my sawhorses . This nesxt picture is after I’ve routered both sides to be nice and level for stacking later, I’ve applied anchorseal at both ends. Ready for some boracare , for a preventive treatment of powder-post beetles.

Wow, that thing must weigh a ton. Nice flattening job. Any issues with routering wet wood?

Besides my back, not really . I’m relatively new this whole process of slabbing wood, a Costal Live Oak came down in a huge wind storm a couple of years ago on property. So I thought that it might make beautiful table slabs. Never even tried milling my own logs before . So off to the Internet I went and tried to absorb as much information as I could , bought myself a chainsaw 6 months ago and I’m learning along the way . Here’s a picture of the tree.

Have your say...
