Whether it saws that way I don't know, but I've seen curly grain in a lot of white birch I'm processing for firewood. Most white birch is straight grained and pops open nice, you can definitely tell the difference when you get into the curly stuff it's almost like elm.

When I looked up curly birch it said that it was caused by a genetic defect and it only grew in Finland and Russia. That must be a specific type because like many things "curly" can have varying degrees.
Change is hard....
Especially when a jar full of it falls off the top shelf and hits your head!

About ten or maybe fifteen years ago , I got my curly birch from the U.P. area. My guy tells me that no one is bothering to cut birch trees . He used to go to the mills and buy  the curly birch logs.

A new customer brought these 5 slabs the other day to saw in half.  He thought it was walnut?  Is he right?

Cut a big pine with ant damage.

Ants came after the damage was caused by decay/rot in the pine. Good indicators of rotten wood.

Might make some good boards when dried and finished off nice.

Does Butternut grow in Wisconsin?
Yes it does (even a town named Butternut in Wisconsin). Sawn it a couple times, makes nice hardwood boards.
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.

Res I know you sing some country music, so when you mentioned you had sawn it, I thought it was you had seen the town of butternut, and was using the past tense for having seen it.  "sawn".   :D :D :D

Brandi, not sure it would be cost effective.  I get it free, and my buddy has about 600 more logs 20 feet long and already limbed.  He is clearing some pasture ground (about 100 acres) of these trees.  the ground was unattended for 30 + years.  Let me know if you happen to be up this way with a trailer.

Yup Doc, I've Seen it, sawn it, been there, and done that.  :D
Funny how ERC is prevalent in some areas and scarce in others. Around here, I could cut it and sell it for closet paneling all day long.
