I cut this slab with my alaskan chainsaw mill. This is the very first slab I cut, it came out pretty good for a first attempt, it took about 2 hours of sanding to get these pics. I just wiped it down with mineral spirits for the pictures, I still have to finish sanding out the edges and put a nice hand rubbed oil finish on it. This tree had been down for about 2 years from a range management juniper clear cut project, and typically these trees just lay out there till nature takes its course, or a prescribed burn sent through the area, or cut up for firewood. I like this option much better.
