Got an old one today...

240 growth ring white oak.  19 growth rings per inch!  Can't wait to quartersaw it!

This is two tree's worth of clear grade logs.  The log labeled "B1" had the tightest growth rings.

Beautiful !
An end cut on one of the bigger logs would be great candidate for a 'time table'.
Could you post some pics of how you quarter saw on the Baker mill - just interested as compared to the reverse roll quarter saw method that Yellowhammer and Customsawyer use.

Depending upon the log size and what I need for inventory, we use several different methods for QS milling.
Roberts Reverse Roll method is our principle method though.

My favorite part is to the right of the quarter the inner rings are even tighter.  Then you can see where the growth "accelerated" for a while.  Must have finally reached the canopy one way or another.   ;)

Diameters vary between 24 - 36.  They came from a subdivision site in Durham.

Nice logs!  
I want to mill some oak flooring.  Need to learn RRRQS (not just read about it).

That's some gem-stock! I recently had a load with similar (old growth) but only one white and the rest red. White turned out epic, however.

I've seen something here that looks like it might be similar with the release in growth rings, a zone of intermittent shake at that change in growth rate. We tracked it back in these trees to Hurricane Hugo that opened the woods up but probably damaged a lot of bark. Hazel, or maybe earlier?

Where in Durham?, although most of my old stomping grounds is already subdivision.

Wow what logs!.
Sawed an old WO sinker log for a friend a few years ago. so slow growing it was hard to count the rings without magnification.
The thing looked like a canoe and was infiltrated with fine sand but got her done.
waiting impatiently for some pics of the stuff you saw.
