Hal, that’s a respectable white oak log; thanks for posting! Wish that I was closer and able to grab and mill it, but the fuel costs alone to R/T from Raleigh to Johnson City would be prohibitive.

It hurts to see the giants felled by age, disease or storms, but to me it’s even worse to see the wood go to waste afterwards.

For some reason, I sense that there may be a big chainsaw in your future! Your other option it to go the dynamite or black powder route (there are some postings on youtube about using black powder to split giant logs).

There is nothing like yielding an extra-wide QS board from a nice oak log.
