Finished up few.....
« on: November 07, 2015, 06:09:41 am »
Finished up a few jobs today. Although, I don't think I like to use the term 'job'....I'm having a blast, loosing some belly, and generally just feeling great! This mill should have been here a long time ago.

Only thing left to mill was a big chunk Southern Red Oak{Quercus falcata} and two pieces of crotch White Oak{Quercus alba}. Slabs of 5/4 thickness, natural edge....sort of boring, well unless ya know how to cut the timber to get the 'purty out'! Tiger Oak.....pfft.



Photo's? There was a few....

This one is to show the mill is getting dirty. But it cleans off easy at 50+mph on the way home.





I generally cut for quality, and sometimes that makes more waste then some like...  But the last of the logs he had on site needed to have some 'purty stuff', so I got the go ahead and did my thing!

Close-up!





From my understanding, the oak I cut will be used for book cases.  And maybe a few 'small boxes'?

I like seeing the grains in the wood when milled like this.

Thanks for sharing.

It's always been the grain that has had me 'hooked'.  I really enjoy being the first to see what is coming out of the inside of a log.  And I strive to find the best-of-the-best in a piece of timber.


I call those slabs the 'backbone'.
