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.

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

Update

First pic - fresh milled (not the same piece as the rest but from the same log)
Second - after a year of air drying and then pressure washing
Third - after being run through a planer
Fourth - what normal pecan looks like - all the black coloration on the others is from a type of fungus that I purposely let grow to produce that effect, called spalting. Some people like it some don't, I happen to like it.

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.

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

Looks great!!
