A Not-So-Highly-Valuable Black Walnut Log
« on: January 25, 2014, 09:37:03 PM »
Ran across a knappy black walnut log.  Way too big for me to handle on the LT15.  What to do?  Call Customsawyer (Jake). 

 

 

The log looks crotchety, and so was Jake because it was COLD!

 

 

Definitely some rot, surely some metal, maybe Jake will be mad at me for this unless I can convince Julio to come over and cook something  :).

Jake's friend John D. came along to help.

 

 

Ready to go to make a date with a LT70  ;D.

Peter,

Yep, so far it is a mystery.  It might be a flop.  There might be something good. 

David,

The Forestry Forum Calculator has that black walnut butt log weighing at 3000 pounds.

David,

Grits, not Jelly.  That way, the contest entries will be limited and you stand a good chance of winning.   

Magicman,

If this one has an insulator in it, Jake will be mad at me  :).

It is fun to see what in them. I man can guess what's in it.
But for as long as I have cut logs I always look and sometimes you get a big surprise. :D :D

It is HIGHLY likely you will find at least 1 nail in a HIGHLY valuable Walnut log.
I never use a new blade..I'l use a new re-sharp blade..but not a brand new one.

Looks like pine, maybe some other conifer, surely not a black walnut post  :).
