I spent the afternoon cleaning up some snow with the blower before the next storm.

Midway through, a spring in the clutch control mechanism broke. It was inside the underbelly. At first I was annoyed; then I was relieved that it broke between storms and I could fix it on a nice, sunny day and not in the middle of a blizzard.

We will have to wait and see. Besides the slabs from these two pieces we also cut three straight logs into 1x8’s.

We usually mill in Saturday’s. The shop is open to the public for demonstrations and workshops.

Hello FredS
Many years ago, I was building a hot rod and taking pains to cover the steering shaft in the engine compartment with an aluminum tube and bracketry. I spent perhaps 10 hours on it. Mrs FredS thought it was a waste of time because no one would see it. I said "What do you mean!? It's right there in the open." She said, "Not when the hood is closed!"

That's what the inside of this tree is like. I know Monty no longer believes, but dude, look what the creator put inside that tree.

I likely missed seeing it in one of the posts but what kind of wood is that?

Hello mont974x4
I freely admit that I always love finding the hidden beauty inside these logs.


And yes, it’s walnut.

I used to live in the upper Sacramento California Valley where all the almond and walnut groves were. Because there was constant replanting of new trees firewood was dirt cheap. Walnut made good wood for a wood stove, but almond was a little better, leaving little ash. Place one more medium-sized piece on the fire before bed and close down the flue and the house would still be warm in the morning.

I miss a wood stove. In the S. Arizona deserts, it doesn't get cold enough and long enough to warrant one. I use passive solar a lot. The winter sun hits most of the entire south facing black front entry security door from mid-morning on and it is amazing how that keeps the house warm.

But firewood warms you 3 times. Once when your cutting and splitting it, again when you're carrying it, and then finally when you burn it.
