As some of you know I got my bandsaw mill up and running yesterday.http://lumberjocks.com/projects/19484
This is the second log I sawed. I found it on the side of the road in a swampy area, where it had been blown down and someone had cut it out of the way. I went and got my buddies Rick and Rob (sounds like a radio morning show,lol) and they helped me load it in the back of my truck,
It has some beautiful color. I have a smaller one that I cut open with a chainsaw and when it dries more it is a beautiful warm brown color. Anyone know what it is and if it’s any good for building furniture with.
On a personal note: I sure wish my wife was here to see the mill, she would have been so proud of me.
