On a recent trip to northern arizona, I contacted a tree service company to see what kind of cool logs they might have laying around. This trip I ended up buying some AZ Cypress, douglas fir and black jack oak. I started milling some of the oak and cypress. The first few pictures are of oak and the last pictures are of the az cypress. I milled the cypress into huge fire place mantles. They are roughly 7 feet long 12 inches wide and 5 inches thick.The oak was milled into 8/4. The douglas fir are huge, im thinking of cutting 3 inch thick slabs for bookmatched dining tables. These would make a massive 10 foot by 4 foot two slab dining table.
