a rare find

these two huge cedar trees had just been cut down . i contacted the property owner and was given permission to harvest the wood . it was about to go to the land fill ! freehand ripping with the chainsaw
my favorite moment as a woodworker , the first look inside . cutting into a log is a special moment , almost 100 years to grow , a creation of a seed , soil , rain , and sulight , no man has ever seen whats inside , most can walk past never knowing the potential of what is inside . i will track the progress of the cedar slabs from todays harvest to thier final forms
