This was a Red Oak that was storm damaged. The trunk was near 5 feet diameter and stood 24 feet tall. I was cutting this in August full sun. Lots of sweat and enjoyment, lol. The cants were cut free hand with a 3 foot chainsaw. The cants were nearly all qtr-sawn grain; 13 inches square by 8 feet length. From here to my saw mill. Many projects in mine that kept me pushing on thinking of the furniture I would make from this tree. It was over 225 years old, so my dedication is to put this tree into furniture. Thanks for looking, many more projects to show from this tree.
