Take caution when working the Spalded wood, it is a fungus that can get in your lunch so wear a mask.

Looks great!!

Sounds good, if it would ever stop raining I could cut up the stack of cedars I've got sitting in the yard. And I've got an uncle planning to cut down a cypress that I'm looking forward to as well.

Meadowlark Beautiful wood. Like others, I always wanted to make my own lumber but never got around to it.

High_Water Another mystery log, I'm pretty sure its a red oak. I have a lot more of this wood, but I cut up a 4' section to see how bad the bugs had got to it and termites were pretty bad. I managed to scrape a few 2x4s out but I'll probably leave the rest in the woods.

High_Water Mystery log, I've been told it might be elm. Cut into 2x12s, the live edge was too rotten to leave attached.

High_Water Silver leaf maple. Interestingly the root ball was roughly the shape of Texas.
