Depends greatly on what kind of mill you are using. Give some details and people will be able to help you.
Mobile Demension sawmill, Bobcat 873 loader, 3 dry kilns and a long "to do" list.

larger logs are easier too...

I don't like to quartersaw anything under 22 inches or so, and prefer 24.

Woodmizer LT40HDG25 / Stihl 066 alaskan
lots of dull bands and chains

There's a fine line between turning firewood into beautiful things and beautiful things into firewood.
