That is kinda cool. I wonder how you finish it. Lots fewer splinters.

Interesting. Probably really hard on sawblades.

Why would they make the logs round? Why not stack the newspapers so every board would come out quarter sawn?

Maybe you get a slightly better ratio of dark to light bands when the paper is rolled because the pages might wrap more than once. It seems like most of the contrast would be coming from a stack of colored pages (comics or ads) showing up between a stack of black/white.

I saw this 25 years ago but the purpose was to make fire wood out of old newspapers.
