    I'm going to try out my CSM on those Oak logs I have soon.
    I measured the first log (top pic) to best utilize the wood.
    I just cut it to the lengths (bottom pic) I think will best suit me.
    I have a 8 foot section at the top of the screen and a twelve foot section (in second pic).
    But since its my very first try at Milling with a CSM, I kept a section of about 5 feet to practice on first.
    I also have some fours and will have more practice stuff from that bigger second log to the left if I want.
