highly valuable walnut
« on: December 16, 2014, 08:06:38 AM »
Though I would share this with yall...this was a 30" "highly valuable walnut" crotch that I was planning on getting some Christmas gifts out of. But after 27 nails and a rake I decided it was better suited for the wood stove.

Ya that had some hardware in it.  well maybe you can get that rake out and it will still be good.  I think that is the only value in that crotch.   :D

Silly Boy.  The rake was added so that you could clean up the sawdust after you finished sawing.

If you get it into your wood stove, will this be the best ever definition of  "getting raked through the coals?"  :D :D  All the best, Rob.

After pulling nails out of it for what seemed like forever, I decided to cut a kerf with the skill saw and split it open with a wedge to investigate further.

I think I will try and remove the rake so I can return it to Home Depot... :D

I doubt home depot will take it back because that damage to the teeth is not from normal use.

I'm not sure exactly what is abnormal about sawmilling but I'm pretty sure that anyone that might have made a wrong turn and happened upon the sycamore project would have taken one look at all of us and known that something wasn't quite right.

If you have taken out 27 nails and a rake you might as well keep sawing now .  Just can't be anymore surprises.
