Looks good.  I think it would look better if you started with the round log though. :D  

That's easy for me to say when you're swingin' the axe. ;D

Nice work.  Enjoying your thread.  Thanks for posting.

Is that a standard dozuki or does it have the special rip teeth.  I've been thinking about getting one for green wood.  Hard to find a good rip saw these days that doesn't cost and arm and two legs.

Drying and Processing / Re: 12 inch wide oak

« Last post by Kindlinmaker on Yesterday at 11:47:25 PM »
Flat sawn may not make it to the resaw without a fair amount of damage. We needed a few oak boards and didn’t have any in our stash.  Grabbed a 28” x 6’ white oak log off the firewood log stack that we knew had flaws in it. Flat sawn at 5/4 and then retrimmed sides into a few boards. Stacked the balance of the flat sawn slabs on a pallet by the mill. 2 weeks later I notice a couple of the slabs look decent for boards but cracks had already started in the center ends. Grabbed a couple and ripped down the center to save if possible. Those boards had a good 1” bow after center rip. No doubt they would have self destructed if stickered and air dried as slaps. I have a major slab experiment in my basement. 10/4 of various species air drying for the last year with stickers and weight. Red oak is actual behaving better than white oak, sugar maple, silver maple and cherry.  Most have some degree of center splits and the cupping on slabs near the pith of some (especially cherry) is lifting hundreds of pounds of slabs and weight stacked on top.  Slabs are a trick; I may never figure them out but I sure am learning as I try. (And living up to my name making lots of kindlin).

Chainsaws / Re: Husky handle

It appears my Baileys catalog has a listing for Husky Pro Safety handles but none for the 390XP. But they have made typos before.
 

I was looking online. I don't have their print catalog anymore

440A did the same thing. Start it and soon as there was hydro pressure the steering flinched a little bit and the brake pedal bouncing was a common thing also.

Also all the wood is in the truckers name. He gets the check from the mill then he takes out the trucking and I get a check from the trucker with the scale tickets.

Here’s a video of building a bridge.  I cut the black locust timbers you see them unloading at the 43min mark from the yellow penske truck.

At 53 minutes in you can see the blue spraypaint on the end of a white oak timber thats how I mark my logs.  I had run out of black locust log and I had one 16’ beautiful white oak log that ended up making just enough to finish the order.

That sounds good. $5.20 a bf for green dead stacked wood. How can you go wrong?

Bourbon, big torches, stacks of wood...would could POSSIBLY go wrong? I'm in.  ;D 8)
It occurs to me that this pretty much fits the description of the Sycamore project.  Maybe Poston could give is a live demo next year?  
smiley_thumbsup Maybe I'll see the smoke from here.

Thanks for the info .Ordering tomorrow.  Problem solved.

Called 3 big lab supply companies here and got nowhere.  Didn't turn up much on the interweb.  

As for sterilization temps and times, with the solar kiln i get what i get and that's it.  May not be perfect, but it beats doing nothing.  Same with setting the pitch.  Definitely not hot enough for long enough,but it does help somewhat.

Thanks for the feedback.
