I toasted a blade in that mud , blade rose a inch in the last 6-8" of cut. On the last cut. After pressure washing the clay out,
The edges and root inclusions are a shiny black  curious too see if the wood will stay hard and not spongy.

I think this is an English Walnut. Friend wanted them taken down as they are monstering the neighbours house, and starting to shed ~18" branches.  There are 2 of them. Maybe 4ft dia?

Contractor was lined up to drop them with the help of an excavator, but they took a 2nd look, and didn't think the 12 ton was enough insurance. They are coming back to do more ground work and will bring some Heavy Metal for that job. Lean a 20 ton machine on them and you have a lot more reserve push. 

But they can just lay them on the ground, then I can do something with them. 

Note the native epiphytes growing up there. A mix of ferns and orchids. Rain Forest climate.  Stuff just grows.

What an awesome project Jeff!  I recently sawed up a big chunk of California walnut burl for a friend who had stored it in his shop for 20+ years.  Loved the character in those slabs.  Thanks for sharing this adventure I look forward to following it!

At least it was the last cut. Will you still be able to slavage those 2? How thick do you mill them?

Would like to know how you used that wood stabilizer for the cookies. I was under the impression that you needed to submerge the whole cookie for quite a while.
