Maybe you don’t think it’s a project to get wood for future projects. It is to me considering how slowly things move around here. Recently, a friend called with an elm tree trunk that was coming down in a neighborhood in town. They were going to get a crane and everything since the guy built his garage roof around the trunk. Hmmm. Anyway, the crane picked up the trunk and put it into my trailer and I hauled it to a sawyer friend who bandsawed it up into about 25 planks of varying size…mostly 10 footers of 5/4 and 8/4. And some 4 footers of 5/4/ and 8/4. And a few odds and ends. Here’s this completed project…to be dry in about 2 1/2 years. Oh and the maple tree 8/4 flitches I have out back? Yeah, tested 8 per cent the other day…it’s ready. Anyway, here’s a few pictures of the elm.
