Sawed up some really nice walnut and maple this week.
« on: September 10, 2016, 04:52:10 PM »
I put some nice figured maple and crotch walnut logs on the mizer this week.

Got some great results from both of them. I had my camera as usual and made two videos showing the process.

Really nicely done videos, thanks for posting them up.

Question: Is that walnut green, or dry? If it's green, do you need to coat the end grain with something like Anchorseal to try to minimize checking? Also, is it better to cut up lumber when green, or dry?

Sorry for the basic questions, but I don't have a mill yet and I'm just learning the basics.

Also -- what was that hose between the engine and the alternator that you were moving around? Some kind of blower?

Thanks again. That walnut should make some nice furniture and/or gun stocks.

Nice videos. I'm jealous. All I get to saw is birch, spruce and cottonwood. Not a lot of variety up here.
I was young and dumb once. I got over being young a long time ago.

That small hose is the oil plug,
It was green timber, I coat all my ends as soon as I harvest the tree.

Haha slabs like that are very hard to sale. I hate letting go of them!

Thanks, I put a lot into the filming of them. Sometimes I turn around and don't have as productive of a day cause I spend most of the time cleaning saw dust off my lenses.

I appreciate the feedback!
