yep, like that, good job!
Most big, older Sycamores will have a lot of heart rot, there’s not much left and they’ll split, not so much in an chair but more where the tree just collapses in on itself.
If I start my face and start getting junk out from the side cover I’ll usually try to get an excavator in and just make a few cuts and push it over. Not everyone has that luxury, though.
I see yer not ded yet
not by a long ****ing shot
How are ya?
I know you are tough as nails, but my heart goes out to you with your recent loss. Glad to see you are keeping an eye on this bunch. Ron
Thank you Ron.
I am keeping busy. My OG Redwood bar, 2''x28''x10', milled from a leftover log from 1905, hauled in my '96 Ranger.
That should make a heck of a bar. Ron
It helps being near the source, $300 for a custom job.
Don’t know what it would be here, but a lot more. I assume it will have a nice red color.
When I was a kid, I helped my dad build a small country store. He built the counter with an OG pine top about that same size. Not knowing any better I took wood like that for granted. Business didn’t pan out well with the advent of convience stores so he sold it, counter and all, to a Danish carpenter who converted the store into a residence. I would love to have that counter top now.
The exterior of the store was sided with western cedar shim shingles We culled every bundle with the clear shingles going on the roof. Inside was paneled with eastern red cedar cut off my grandfather’s land.
Barber Chair: The 'Ol boys up here, when working with big Alder, wrap a nice stout chain around the trunk above the saw cut. Tighten it up real tight with a chain binder. Keeps the Alders from splitting/barber chairing. Alder is bad about splitting above the cut.
A little shorter a little fatter... few more sexy scars
Very, very few trees in very specific circumstances ever need a chain wrapped around them.
Nice work sir.
I am from europe, Slovakia. This wood is around 200 years old. Thats normal size for beech wood here my record pieces are much bigger
Have you a special use for them?
I’ve read about them. Wow, I wouldn’t want to leave the forest. I’m known at work to love trees and more specifically, tolerant hardwood species like this beech. Curious, what type of beech is this? Is there only the one? We have fagus grandifolia.
This is fagus sylvatica, we have here the grandifolia too. Beech is the most common hardwood here. Then are oak, ash, maple and others.
Ok, gonna try to convince my wife to leave for Slovakia and nearby countries tomorrow. Must be beautiful. We also have beech, ash and oak, but everything’s being cut so private landowners with such stands are lucky. Someone at work owns 200+ acres, 60+ of tolerant hardwood only (Sugar maple, yellow birch, beech) and he cuts that for his firewood. Typical for some part of the province, but still, they’re so nice!!
I'm getting taller, stronger and better looking.
Last few years weren't good.
