  Are those last ones '1x's? And how did they do in the drying process. looking at them they feel to my hand light enough to throw. I'd love to think they dried straight and strong, but I haveta ask..  lw

LW,
They were straight when I took them from the stack.
They sat outside covered for about six months then I put them in the attic of my garage and haven`t looked at them since last Fall.
They were all 1x`s.
I could barely lift the pot lickers when they were green.
That gentleman in the picture is the guy that owns the farm, he`s got a ton of neat stuff kicking around the old farm.
He showed me a pair of cedar oars that his dad split and carved by hand that have never been used.
He had a guy cut the Elm down and he gave me the log.
He watched me mill it and couldn`t believe his eyes when he saw boards come off the log.
He was so excited, I think it was a real treat for him to see the chainsaw mill work.

Here`s a picture of Harry ...
