This post probably doesn’t add a lot of value to the site, but my wife doesn’t appreciate how awesome this is so I’m gloating to you guys instead.
I have a coworker that had a smallish (12-13”) cherry tree down on his property and he asked if I wanted it since I was into woodworking. I jumped on it and managed to cut the main trunk into three 9ft sections. I also snagged a crotch cut and a burl for turning. I had planned on dragging them with a 4 wheeler and winching them up into the bed of my truck, but my buddies looked at it and decided they could simplify things. Before I could even jump in to help, they hoisted up the first log and took off. So, naturally, I stood back and took pictures.
My local sawyer charged me $60 (!) to put them through his woodmizer, and now I have something like 150 bf of really nice looking cherry stacked and drying in my basement. About 1/4 of the boards have some nice speckling from gum deposits. I really like the look of those ones.
