Same process here with the white oak, 4 feet diameter, plumb cut to the center end to end. Trim sap wood edges to for the cants square, and book match the cuts all the way through the saw milling and sticker stacks. This way any projects can be book matched from the cuts any time later.
This tree was a 90 foot, that the property owner dropped the wrong way, after that he was done with it. It was too big for the saw he had. again this was all free hand cutting with the 3 foot bar on my Pioneer 100 cc saw. I have a Stihl 084, 121 cc, i could use up to a 5 foot bar and do nose to nose cuts for a 10 foot beam, for post and beam structure. Just for now the lumber is what i’m going for. During all this, I am really missing the shop time doing real wood working, lol…
Thanks for looking !! more posts later, cause i am missing the shop time with another project. :)
