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…
