This may be a lost cause, but I figured it’s worth a shot….
We recently had our old maple tree in the yard trimmed significantly, and I had the trimmer leave me 3 logs that are each about 6 feet long and maybe 8 inches in diameter. I was hoping to somehow use these for some sort of project, but unfortunately I don’t have a bandsaw big enough to mill this down into something useable. The logs aren’t so large that I would consider it worth it to haul them to a mill, so I’m curious if anyone has any creative and SAFE ideas on how I could get these down to something workable? The tools I have to use are a tablesaw, circular saw, scroll saw, couple handsaws, manual tree saw, router (i’ll be shocked if someone has an idea for that), and an axe.
Any ideas would be appreciated, otherwise my next project may be one of those $200 pottery barn sanded logs that I can’t believe people pay for.
