If I understand correctly, you open the log on the side where the pith is nearest to the bark. So, if your mill cuts off the top of the log you orient the pith up for the first cut. Right?


That about describes it... in far fewer words! Haha.  Doesn't mean my way is right though, it's just another "way".
