I hope Bogue Chitto doesn't mind, I made a windows 1920 x 1080 background from the pic. The pic sizing on FF reduces the resolution. If you would like it, it is at NOTE FROM ADMIN. LINKS TO OFFSITE PHOTOS ARE NOT ALLOWED Click on the link and right click to save it when it appears.

Where are you guys getting this wood??  :o :)
  It was just one log. Log was from a customer.  He told me where he got it but I think he wants to keep it a secret.

You can rest assured that it was an isolated incident. 

I sawed a SYP sinker from about 75 miles upstream of you.

The tight rings indicate slow growth but it was nothing compared to your specimen.  The customer said that he had more but I was glad that he did not bring them to me to saw.

My son was doing the milling on this log when I saw him pushing the saw head. What is the problem with the mill?  I asked him.  The log was so hard that we had to help push the saw head forward.  I hope he does not bring another, ;) unless he gives half the log to me.
