On trees of that size I like to slice slabs off of two opposing sides, down to about 4” from the pith on each side; then I’ll tip the log up and slice off 1-2” lumber, being 8” wide, for legs, stringers, etc. Go to 3” from the pith if you would prefer 6” wide lumber. I throw the piece with the pith away. Makes for nice opportunities for tables of the same tree or selling people what they want; it also makes nice looking lumber, with nice centers and even looks.
