Jeff I don't need a hat, have lots of them, but I would like to find out what really happened.

For the record I learned that kind of teaching from our very fine Mr. Tom so he is the one that deserves the credit. ;)  I pray that I am able to help someone half as much as that man helped me. If there was a medal of honor for teaching Tom has it coming.  :)

If that pattern could be duplicated without tearing anything up, and keep an even cut from end to end, it might make a good trailor floor?  Just saying, after reading MM's post on the ribbed cypress, I have had comments that my boards were to slick, even had one fellow say can you rough them up a bit?
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

I have no idea what I hit to make my blade do that and did not check it to see what was wrong.  I just changed it and kept on sawing.  It was not quite as bad as that stuff pictured, but it was plenty bad.  The groves were at least 1/8" deep or more.   I have often wished that I had looked.

I've gotten a similar pattern by setting every tooth and no raker with an exagerated set of about 40 thou. The boards look pretty wavy as well as having the grooves. I think maybe the operator tried sharpening and seting freehand.
