I have a few green Box Elder logs, Weeping willow logs, Black willow logs, and some very dry Box Elder burls.

Getting ready to put them on the sawmill and cut them up. What sizes do you guys use for….bowls..bears and all the creative stuff you make???

What about the dry BE burls?? Pen blanks?

Any input is appreciated.

Oh yeah… that looks great! I’d skip the section with the rocks though, might put a big gouge in your roughing gouge if you try to turn it!
