Solomon, I can cut up to 33" wide. But it really sucks up the gas. I,m not to impressed with the amount of gas it takes in a days time to run it. I wish I got a diesel!

The lumber is great looking and I am sure the clients are pleased.  I look forward to coming by sometime to visit.  I'd like to see your facility.  Did not make it up over Turkey day, not sure when we'll be back that way maybe a quick trip this weekend. 
Hope it is ok to just drop in.

I had some key word had, some that looked similar but smaller that were only 20 in wide at widest spot. I milled em and were gone in less than a week. Infact it was day after I listed them they were sold, but he couldnt make it out til the weekend.
 It was a root ball and stump that was only 3 or 4 feet long.  Not shure what you slab'd at but most around here want it around 2 to 2 1/2 thick, and they grumble if the bark is off.     That first picture I would have saved the Claw. That would have brought an easy $50 with no work involved!  Or it would have worked perfect for a stump/slab table!   Spalted coffee table slabs are nice to have in the collection for sale!
