Sawed Rusty's pine this weekend
« on: June 08, 2003, 04:01:30 PM »
Rusty is always getting pretty longleaf pine.  Being a framing contractor he is around a considerable amount of lot clearing and I get to saw his pine, cypress and anything else he finds that's interesting.  Here is some of the pine that we sawed this weekend.  These pieces were from a tree that had been damaged in high winds or something because the heartwood was irregular and the trees had developed an unusual amount of "lighter".

Tom, that is some fine looking clear longleaf pine!  It's tough to find clear pine up this way and it's more expensive than oak if you can find it.

BW_Williams,
The chances of it drying straight are pretty good.  I cut as much of the stress out as I can, try to keep the heart centered but can't do anything about the crooked tree.  The "lightered" usually cups and warps less than regular pine. I don't know why but feel that it may be that the sap is already crystalized and the cells have sealed and contain little, if any, water.  Still, the design of the drying stack will have a lot to do with it.  Rusty is good at building sticker stacks and I have no doubt that this wood will be pristine flooring before long. :)

Charlie.
You should have seen the really good stuff we cut.  There were 16 foot 1x8's with no flaws and boxed heart 4x8's  with a few small knots the size of a pencil eraser if they had any at all.
