Crotch Cutting (ouch!) Question

Thomas Skaggs, Foothills of Mount Level
>Hello,

We had a heckuva storm blow thru last week and knocked a lot of trees over. A friend lost a large walnut tree and offered to let me cut and take what I wanted. (woohoo!)

I have one chunk where the trunk forks. How do I orientate my cuts to get the best figure for turning?
