A guy on Facebook had a walnut log and I inquired.  He said that it was 18" across.  I asked for a pic and he send several.  Turned out to be that highly valuable mockernut hickory walnut :D

Thats the guy!  Hes here too, everywhere, saying hickory is walnut.

Its got to be a walnut, it drops these big, black nuts. Its a hickory.  

Its got to be a walnut, its straight as an arrow and I have hundreds of them.  Its a hickory.

I cant be a hickory, it looks like a walnut.  Its a hickory. 

My neighbor is an idiot, he burned all his walnut for firewood last year.  Its a hickory.

It cant be a hickory, the guy I bought it from says it a walnut.  Its a hickory.  

Believe it or not, some of these guys are so persistent, I have @WDH on speed dial, and I say If you dont believe me, believe this guy, hes a professional.  In that case, nope, its an ash. :D



YellowHammerisms:

Take steps to save steps.

If it wont roll, its not a log; its still a piece of tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not pieces of trees.

I blame all this ashing around on Southside.

My walnut hickory guy was persistent too.  

I did not know that there was such a thing as speed dial anymore :)

Just for reference, this is a trailer load of Highly Valuable Walnut logs.



 
When I am sawing "hourly rate" it does not matter; large, small, short, or tall, I saw them all and had a "Goat Note" in my pocket when I got back home.

This was one of the very rare instances when a customer brought his "logs" to me.  Whatcha Sawin' 2019 ??? in Sawmills and Milling

Walking away with a Goat Note sure made that a highly valuable load of walnut logs, at least to you it was!!

Walnut hickory guy has a brother, white oak poplar guy and they have a sister.  Her name is can you saw this stick into lumber girl.  Their cousin is I have a cedar.  They all have a neighbor with a sawmill that will pay them just for the privilege to saw their high value trees into lumber worth millions.

Sorry for the sarcasm, I just got through explaining to a guy why I wont pay a tree service $5,600 to cut down the walnut trees in his yard.

I get a lot of the Payem brothers also.  I think its a strategy of the tree cutters to convince the land owners that they can sell the logs to help pay for the arborist service.

Yes!  It's a tree service ploy so they don't have to haul the heavy stuff to the landfill!

AH HA!!!! This explains what I never understood. "Why do they do this?" Now I have an explanation when I run up against this.

OK, maybe I am the woodcutter now.
I can work with wood, but I am NOT a Woodworker, yet.
