This was a large tree about 50” base.I used the quartersawn parts to create the table to customers specs.This was a fun project especially building with 18” quatersawn boards.

Joseph,

That’s some beautiful lumber and it looks great made into furniture. You are very fortunate to live in such a beautiful place and are able to work with beautiful wood. But, I’m even more impressed by your tiny shop helper in the photo who loaded that huge log. I have trouble rolling something that big on level ground…
