My question is how’s the pickup? It looks like a whole lot of weight for any pickup.

Enjoy, boy what fun!

I’m going to pressure wash the root and cut away whatever turing pieces I can get and seal. Ill trim the ends of logs flat and seal. The trunk is to heavy so I’ll mill that in 3 pieces and seal. I’m goingto Lowes to get a gallon of thompsens or olympic weather sealer. Any other ideas will be appreciated.
I’ll stack these outside and place a tarp overthem for about 6months or til they shrink slightly and all the bark falls off.
I’m undecided now about any projects, but I do need some 1/8” thick x 2”wide strips for dinner table and a few long strip inlays for a bookmatch desk.

The pickup….1/2 ton, I took 3 trips. We drove that ol mule through the carwash so shes all smiles now.

I desperatly need a dual axle trailer.
I think I’ll pass on the root so if somebody wants it let me know($neg). Ill ship it C.O.D. on a pallet.

You mean your home Damocles? Aaaaa, nope.

I still cant believe I own it all. Theres definatly some high skilled wood crafters here that deserve it more than me. But I’ll take it and become better skilled myself! Thankyou very much!
