I’d like to see some pictures of them carved into a gunstock! Don’t you love opening a log and finding treasure like this? When I was in college one of the girls I saw on campus had a tee shirt that said: “You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find a Prince!”

I love your Lucas Mill. As soon as I make some money with my bandsaw, I’m going to build a chainsaw mill and frame to cut large walnut stumps into gunstocks. right now I can cut a 34” wide log with the throat of the saw opening to 29 1/2 inches. I’ve got 5 walnut trees in my woods that I’ll have to split the butt log and stump to get them on my sawmill. I’m waiting to cut them till I can handle the wide stuff.
