Well first off try as she might my hen turkey decoy was unable to attract a mate so the turkey hunting so far has been a bust. But on the bright side I have gotten to spend some quality time with my son which was worth the fortune I spent on camo gear!
So lets see where did I leave off…. oh yeah
Ok so to continue on I took the first pass down the log. On a normal log this would establish a flat reference surface and the the log would be turned and another pass taken to eventually get to a square cant and then I would begin removing boards. This log since I am hoping for some crotch lumber is handled differently.
As the process of removing slabs continues I discover I have a minor issue.
So out comes the chain saw for some log trimming to allow for a few more slabs to be removed.
And while I was at it I thought I would go ahead and get my metal detector out and see if the log has any metal in it.
That’s right a brand new Woodmizer double hard blade “The Worlds Greatest Metal Detector”
OK so I have my metal detector on and I have cut a few more slabs and here is what it looks like
It has a knot about 2’ down from the end of the log not a deal breaker but not exactly what I wanted to see.
So I decided to flip the log over and cut from the opposite side.
That is the story as it sits now when I finished cutting the log to the deck I will finish the story for all who are still interested.
Then maybe if anyone is interested I will start the great 2500.00 white oak log adventure!!!!!
