Hardly ever see any of that stuff. ;D

They're really smooth and silky yet firm and pointy  :)

I do see a lot of blue.



Sometimes I see a lot of other things also. :D

Our heads are straight about noon . . .

Sawed the rest of the naily walnut with a used monkey blade--no more nails  :)

Started on the next log with a fresh monk . . .

The sapwood throws me, or I would say walnut. I have sawed standing dead walnut with the exact same outside texture bark off , but the sapwood was as dark as the heart and came loose in the saw. That looks pretty solid (and white, like living fresh cut). The pith will give more clues. The one thing I can identify is the nails, the man who drove them in the tree was left handed and had a lisp. He must have gotten around he ruined 2 of my blades today.

Heck yeah! That's boutique wood--historic content y'know? What retail lumber shop you know that you can buy musket balls from the civil war at?

Scott, if you have any bites on the "naily walnut" as an upcharge, I have some mulberry sawed today that has some "antique" barbed wire fence in it. There are people who actually collect old barbed wire and put it in picture frames. I am looking for a collector looking for bandsaw blades with bent teeth, I could get rich. I have not had a band die of natural causes in a week, I am looking forward to next week. I am sawing my own trees from my timber, finally I will get to wear one dull. 8)

Hey Daren, got any pics of the Mulberry?  I got about 30 logs of it to cut and was wondering what it looks like when opened up.  I assume its similar to Osage, or Hedge.

I was told that the blue topurple to black stain in the log ment that there was metal in the log . Oak react with the nail very well turns dark purple some distance around the nail.  What I have seen anyway.
 
The mulbeary should be a yellow color .

Papa,

You are so right and we usually try to saw around any black spots we see on the ends of the log.

This works great on Red Oaks due to the fact that the porous rings will conduct the iron-tannin stain several feet up and down the log.

In White Oaks or Walnut though, the stain oftem doesn't go much more than an inch or 2 due to their semi ring porosity.  Sawing the above pictured naily Walnut, we couldn't even see the stain through 6/4s of wood  :(

Scott that there metal wood is a DanG nuisance.

I re-tiped seven Lucas blades on my last big cutting job, just a fornight ago.

Very unhappy and a bit gunshy due to economic restrictions :(

But you get that, though great looking timber ;) 8)

Kirk
There is a pic of a peice of that mulberry in my album, I just added it. I am having computer probs. I can get pics into my album, but I can't add them to a post (Jeff keeps fixing my posts, I will get lined out soon) The pic is not a good example of nice mulberry, like I said it had fence wire in it, rot in the middle and a limb got took off years ago by a storm or something and had one bad side. If you have some nice length straights, I would say you have some pretty wood. I have sawed some without all the junk and was VERY pleased.
