for me, this became a project in and of itself, so I thought I’d post some pics here of the “harvesting” process, and then we can see some finished individual wood items from this in the future. If anyone’s interested in reading the write-up I did on this project, check it out in my Wingers Woodworks blog

Now the fun, dreaming about all the future projects.
A real nice haul.

A new chain for your chainsaw is cheaper than a truck load of walnut! Good score!

That’s a very nice stash of good wood. BTW, you have a nice blog; my compliments.

A fantastic score on the wood. I love it when that happens- and I wish I had as much indoor storage space as you have. :)

Thanks for all positive comments. Actually I purchase and new blade and chain before I tackled this project. My old McCullough had a 16 inch bar/chain on it, which was fine many years ago when I used it regularly but this is the 2nd time since I’ve gotten into wood-turning that it just didn’t feel adequate, so I acquired a new 20 inch bar and chain for it (the engine is big enough to handle up to 24” as I recall) and it made the whole process SO MUCH easier! And to agree with Hal, yes, even the new bar and chain doesn’t come close to what the wood cost would be had I went out to purchase it. Just one of the 6” slabs would have cost more.

Nothing like a screaming chainsaw to get the adrenalin going! Have fun!
