This Is What I Call A Real Log! **4 Pics**

Ron in Drums PA
>I get a call from a friend today "Hey Ron, We're cutting the one of the big logs today, Want to check it out?"

Like I'm going to pass this up!

It is 7'10" at the widest point! It had to be cut in half so it can fit into two containers on its trip from Africa. This section in the top half. Total length of the two logs is 36 FEET!!


This amazing quilted figure goes all the way though the log.
This is fresh cut from the saw. I can't wait to see what it looks like with an oil finish.


I wonder how many bowl blanks I can get out of this one?

Can you guess what type of wood this is?
