He said he asks more questions now.

So do I. That's why I askked him to go back out there and look at them again before I drive all the way out there. I'm wising up too after having experinced this Big Tree Syndrome more than once myself.
I even told him if he wants to email me some pictures that would be great. He said he would if he could rustle up his camera.
I should hear from him later to day. If not that's the first red flag but I am thinking positive. :)

Hey Tcmpsi when you go up to Nac... do some recon & look to see how "Mr. Rodgers's" mill is coming along!!! They're building it and I'm busting at the seams waiting to get it!

hammerdown,
They're doing lots of stuff up there presently.  Looks like they've hired on a couple more hands, and are in the process of enlarging a bit.  I looked at the list....
Don't go busting.   There are some LM2 heads in various stages of production.  I don't remember what your preliminary delivery date was, but I suspect it might be a little longer.

And then, I showed up.   :D

I ust read over on fishman's "what to do with these oaks" where Bibbyman says good white oak will bring more than the lumber sawn from them. I guess he is talking about the ones that will make veneer? I didn't want to hijack fishmans thread when I have already got some white oak questions here.

Another question Mike H you say I can q.s. 14"+ - that would mean rift too I suppose mno true q.s.ing, bit still rift sawn makes okay flooring too? Reason I ask is I thought white oak moves alot and with logs <20" I just fured waste would be too much.

 Here is a old 14" red oak I quarter sawed all bark had fallen off.

 

 Then I take the four quarters and take more true q.s. boards.

 

 Then run trough edger at 3.25",4.25",and 5.25" for flooring at 2.5",3.5"and 4.5"
ended up with about 40bdft of pure beauty.

 

  More time to cut? yes, more waste? That depends on how you look at it. There is a Church down the road that has original Q.S. White Oak floor over 110 years old. The reason its still there is stability of Q.S. Oak.

That was an excellent tutorial Mike, thank you. How did you clamp the wedge?

 Lay wedge flat, slide clamp under push up a little and squeeze againt rollers on dog. It will pop off a few times, takes a little practice. The rollers usually hang up in bark so you can get a good low squeeze.



 This one was real hard to get with no bark, otherwise its pretty easy.
