Pictures. Attached are a couple of pictures of a chuck I broke off and brought home, one taken in the house with yellowish lighting, the other in the garage/shop with bright fluorescent lights. I ran it over the jointer as if looking at a 1/4 sawn board. I’m realizing that the best view of the curl results for quarter-sawn wood. If I’m mistaken, please do tell me. The other two pictures are taken looking into the center of the tree (flatted on the jointer as well).

The next is looking into the center of the tree without flattening it.

I just wonder if I’ll get real wide boards if 1/4 sawn because of the size of the heart, which you don’t really see. These pictures are taken from the small log, not the base log. It is also a chuck near where the tree forked, so the heart is larger.

Thank for the input everyone. Good info that I probably wouldn’t have thought about. Will try to seal in the next couple of days.
