This is probably pretty boring as far as projects go. But I was stopped for breakfast and thought I would put it in. Solid Ash. 5 inches thick, 53 inches long and 10 inches wide. This is the piece that the customer picked out. Finished with BLO and water based poly.

Thanks for looking

Correction; it was not water based poly. It was regular poly satin coat.

It has a surf board vibe to me. I like it.

Monte,

Boring is OK. Better than my having to replace my second story window framing off of a 2 story ladder? How’s the saw mill doing?

It is never boring when you are working with wood and doing what you enjoy…

I like it too! Simply accepting what the tree could give.

5” thick will make a VERY substantial mantle!. Never did water base over BLO but it looks nice.

Nice slab to a beautiful mantle. That’s what its all about. Your sawmill does you justice.
