Peterson Demo Day
« on: April 29, 2008, 02:38:03 PM »
Well it has been a year since this log:

 

was reduced to this:

 

plus at least two of the people involved have been reduced in size also. For some of the details see the folowing topic:

Isn't it about time for an update. Where did all that redwood go?????

I have a small chunk of it at my house with a story tag on it, if it is the pcs that Jeff had at the Sawlex and was giving out. Tom_in_Mo also has a piece as well if I remember correctly. Many people at that show probably ended up with a small piece of history!!What a great story!! Had to go back and scan thru some of the story and pics.

That is  a gray shirt and not blue , The fatness is due to the high speed winds in Florida and as I had raised my arm to point which way for Tom and I to run the wind blew up my shirt sleeve and protruded the front side of the shirt in an outward motion , Thus you get the "fatness" look!  :D   :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D
 

 OK  ...... fine ...... it is me but the shirt is gray. :D  :D  :D

This thread is rather timely. Were going to be having  pieces of the Redwood on Ebay with a woodburning on them in the very near future. Sawmill and woodlot are donating some magazines that included the story of that day to go with each piece in the auctions.  :)

I have 32 4" X 8"  Cants for re sawing, I have about 600 bf of 1" X 4" boards, and I have 4   5 1/2' X 19' X 4" slabs leanin up against the shed  ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D

That's a good start, but you know how much we like pictures. Especially of the things that have been already made from the redwood.   ;D ;D ;D

That is awesome.  Doubt I'll be able to afford one but be sure to let us know when they are posted!
