That is some gorgeous figure.
Early this morning I cut my first boards ever from a raw piece of log. I have much more respect for the sawmill than I did before. I quartersawed some green Douglas Fir that I pulled out of the firewood pile at our favorite weekend getaway. My what a lot of work for a tiny amount of usable lumber. My 14 inch bandsaw was hard pressed to even cut through 10 inches of raw log.
