Thanks! This piece is not very useful for any of those things. It’s really thick and only about 3’ long. My intention was to turn it – cut it into blanks. However my only method of cutting it currently is a chainsaw. The mill owner did tell me he uses it for fence posts and they last 70+ years in the ground.

Actually I do need a mailbox. Maybe I’ll take it somewhere and see if I can get it resawed.
