Won't do this again
« on: May 03, 2014, 08:33:23 PM »
Friend dropped a walnut and indicated he wanted to cut/dig out the stump and maybe cut some gun stocks or bowl blanks.
I have never sawn blanks or stump parts.   I end up with the stump "see  what you can do I need it gone" Washed and washed and washed, filed and sharpened time and time again. I'm out,
too much dirt and rocks, finally pulled the 272XP cut the stub stem a ways down and separated the parts.

Won't do that again :(

Now you can seal the ends and let it dry for about 50 years. I'm only sort of kidding, a custom stock maker normally won't start on a blank that is not that old.

I will never forget the rocks that came out of a large fir I took down on our property.  There were rocks in the stump 3 feet off the ground?  Eventually cut the stump into small enough pieces that I could get it into a fire pit.  You wouldnt believe all the rocks that came out of the ashes...

I watched a neighbor do that with a big old pine stump. Watched for weeks and came to the same conclusion.  :-)
