Further to my post “Rescued Wood – Norfolk Pine” at http://lumberjocks.com/topics/6665 here are some pics of the Wild Plum I also slabbed on the same day.
This log is the bottom piece of a tree that blew over on the pavement (sidewalk for those who speak American) in front of our courts in June 2007. The Council’s only chainsaw was out of order, so it lay there for a couple of days. I asked if I could take some of it and received a relieved “yes please”.
This log has been standing on one end, unsheltered since then, and I had to make it smaller for our move.
This is the end that was up – look carefully and you’ll see the center is rotted.
The bottom end with caked on crud
So I raised one end a little and hosed it off and out – you can see some of the mud on the ground that came out of the log
The hole goes right through
Two slabs 20cm thick X 46cm wide, and two slabs with a flat face and a partial round face.
Free Wood !!
