Just cut a large sycamore log on Saturday. It was fun cutting each slice to see what the next one looked like. Nice character all the way through! Will make some nice table tops or Desk tops!

Gorgeous. My what a tree. No mineral marks; I can see it didn’t come from Tennessee.

Very nice slab. Roughly how long would it take me to drive from northern Virginia to where you are in Ohio? BTW, I was born in Youngstown.
