Thanks guys.  My next "road trip" job is 100+ miles in the opposite direction and is supposed to be 80 logs.  If no rain, I will leave Wednesday, so we shall see.

I had overlooked a couple of pictures of the largest log.  It had a butt flair that measured 45".
 

 
45" Cypress butt flair.
 

 
After it had been Bibbyed (gun barreled) down.  The bottom and lower right sides will be trimmed further as I rotate the log.

Good observance.  The chaps were on and protected my jeans, but I do not know that I can give up the leather apron.   ;D

Here's todays whack o cypress.

 

 

Got some pecky boards out of one of the logs..hi dollar stuff
 

 
 

 


Here's the rest of the pile. All dry logs, been piled in the log yard for 1 to 2 years.  Sawing dry cypress is nothing like cutting the green stuff. About like sawing dry cedar..

Cypress is a fun wood to saw, especially above the butt flair.

I have one more Cypress job on my list.  There are about a dozen tree length, so the number of saw logs will depend upon the buck length.  I have seen the logs and they are nice.  The customer is building a new home, so I imagine that there will be some beams.   smiley_thumbsup
