Thought Id reopen this thread a year later to ask a similar question. Ive got four 12 perfectly round, straight, about 26 D mostly tight grained SYP logs from a blow over and a standing tree that I want to make house siding out of. Ive got the Wood Mizer lap siding attachment that came with the old mill but Ive never used it. So tell me if Im right about this. I believe I should use the heartwood only, and Ill only get one 8 cant from each log. Is it practical to get a couple of very small cants off the sides and make siding from those as well? Do I saw down until I hit knots then flip and discard the knotty center?   Im matching siding thats already on the building and planning to put the new boards up greenish so Ill saw slightly oversized.
