This was a project I’ve always wanted to try; make something taking the wood from the tree, milling it and making it into something nice. When the 100 year old red oak in my back yard got hit by lightning 2 summers ago I got my opportunity.
I started out by saving nearly $1000 by cutting down the tree myself but after turning 90% of it into really expensive fire wood, I couldnt take it any more and started in milling it into boards using my chainsaw. (thanks you tube)
I call it “primitive” because I intentionally left it a little rough (knots and cracks) because I like the look.
I love how it turned out and I learned a lot. Always keep learning.
