Nicely done. You are one of the few folks I’ve seen QS’ing logs. I got a fallen sycamore tree sawed into nice boards. Here’s the pattern I’ve taught several sawyers. It’s easily done, without too much waste. If you consider the cupping of flat-sawn boards, it may even be to our advantage. As an added benefit, you get four squares to use as table legs or to make into rift-sawn boards for other uses when you want uniform grain.

Nice rules. I love the grain in QS sycamore, but I don’t see it much in California. I don’t like to buy sight-unseen, either. Anyone know where QSS is sold near Los Angeles? I’m not in LA, just next door.

This case is so nice and that is a fine collection that it houses.

I prefer QS wood and that Sycamore pops! Very impressive collection of measuring devices.
