It doesn’t look like your throat or opening is large enough to handle it. Did you get it cut?

I forgot to add, nice sawmill. I have been researching bandsaw mills for a few months now. Timber King is mill I’m going with if I can ever raise the funds.

Gorgeous grain! Looks like the mill is tuned up well and the exercise went well. I assume that there were no injuries and the equipment is still in working order?

That is some beautiful wood!
It looks like you are in business as the wood got sliced, the saw worked, and no one was hurt!

As president Carter would say, I’ve got lust in my heart. For both the mill and the log.

We cut a fatter one today this one was a 5 hour battle for first cut.not fun trimming but we got it done.Sectioned it of into quartered parts got rid of the heart wood and prime grade A+ lumber.Its amazing wood once in a life time logs really fun just to have the chance to cut.The part trimmed had rote and termite damage so i positioned it so it would not be missed due to trimming with chainsaw.Usually one mistake ends up to be couple hundred to thousand plus in loss and waste cant have that no good.

True. However, at $20-100/board foot, I’d rather lose $100 than 100 board feet! Glad to hear it all gets used, Joseph.
