Concrete was no match for the log splitter !    ;D

Got it out in a few pieces.    This thing has been in the tree a long time.   The closest outside edge of the concrete was 4" from the bark.   I didn't count the rings, but I bet it was close to 5o years since it was grown over completely. 

The glove in the photo is for size reference.



In this photo, you can see large nails sticking out of the concrete.   I guess they used them like rebar to hold the concrete in place.   ???

Was that concrete just a 'hole' filler, or was it a vault concealing a stash o' gold coin?   8)

It's been a while since we did this job but, somebody just brought up the other thread on this topic and after reading through all of both I realized some of the milling pictures never got posted.  So here are the photos of the slabs cut from 3 trunks at the top 40 feet of the tree.

DR_Buck, nice work! What happened to the slabs?  They have had plenty of time to dry, any furniture pictures? :)

Most of the lumber was split between us and sold.   One of the medium slabs is a bar top for a local winery and a customer sent me some pictures of a table he built.
