took down a siberian elm not too long ago this is the biggest piece and I want it cut up and air drying inside my house.

the problem is that with a 18” chainsaw I cant think of a good way to get alot of value out of this massive thing. If I had a bandsaw mill id slab it.

i’m a wood turner but also like incorporating slabs or other dimensional lumber.

Some of it will be super wavy like the top roof of my latest project (birdhouse)

The bowl looks good.
Sorry I had no advise on slabbing it with an 18” bar.
