this was a leftover log at my friends home, he heats his house with 1 soapstone wood stove.
i believe it is hickory,at least that is what he was told..whatever it is, it was some TOUGH stuff to cut through,and 40”+ wide in soem spots ,we had to cut it down to fit within the 36” alakan… the color was beautiful to me…the “stickering”.ahem. leaves little(nothing?) to be desired,but this thing was already very dry from sitting out a year or more.and the slabs are about 6/4 . also cut some big cookies for round outdoor tables…they must be around 48” id guess.
