Nomad. Thanks for the info. I reread you previous quote and will do so once again. I spoke with a former forester/arborist for the state the other day. The first thing he said was to quarter saw it, then he said to use which looks best.

Now, I’m only debating what you said about using flat sawn because of what I’ve seen in the pictures. To reiterate, the last picture above is NOT planed. The first four are all planed. The first two are of the same surface and are obviously the best. They were planed from the quarter-sawn perspective. The 3rd and 4th photos are of the same surface, but a different surface the than first two photos; they were taken from the flat sawn perspective. Pictures don’t lie in this case. Granted these are only two samples, but I want to at least TRY to get the best out of the log. Thanks for your input.

I’m going, RIGHT NOW, to go plane one more flat face to see how it looks.
