« Part 1: Cutting off some ends Part 2 of Red IronBark Adventures series Part 3: Red ironbark I assume? »

OK I skoffed a few cans of spinach and musceled the red Iron bark post onto my table saw.

Did a cut reversed it and did another cut and that was enough until my son arrives.

What I got:

First up I fitted a new blade, as I knew my saw was going to be “workin” chewing through that monster.

The saw actually performed very well, pity I am not as strong as I used to be.

So that was enough. It reminded me of when I tried to mill a log on my bandsaw!

I didnt take a picture of the first off cut but I can assure you its going to yeld some real nice timber
I estimate I can get four pieces about 150mm x 35mm and about 1.6 to 1.8 m rough sawn from the posts.

Actually there was a few more on the footpath later but I was not quick enough to beat the skip truck pick up.. rats!!

Looks like you bit off more than you could chew…

I have been known to do that too… LOL

Good luck!
