Tennessee Curly Cherry

Rick, there’s a little saying at the bottom of each of your post. Put your glasses on and read that thing each time before you turn a machine on!

Boy, if the lumber cut that color we would be in the money.

I've called the exorcist for my shop with Rickey and Richard getting hurt..

Dave I got three rainbow poplar logs today at a log yard. I hate to cut the junk, but they will buy it. 

Cutting curly lumber my favorite wood to cut.

you have to give the people what they want Spanky, you run a business not a charity, not my cup of tea but its what folks want so cut away, i agree on the curly and the figured cherry and many others that you cut, take care of that finger and heal fast my friend.

Rickey, I had a push stick drop down and into the blade this morning, and I now have 9 stitches in the palm of my hand.  Gravity sucks.

I guess as they say, things really do run in threes. I had my second eye lid surgery today and have a series of stitches running across both. I look like a Raggedy Ann doll.

Check out this curly white oak log. I found at the mill this morning.  I have my name on that log now.

Do they debark them or do you? That's a pretty clean log.

Pulling logs out of the mtns in the spring time on a long drag the logs debark themselves. They do debark all logs before going in the mill.

Hey Rickey.. Since you showed off your injury, I felt it only proper to expose mine.  This came about from a push stick that got caught by the splitter and drove it downward into the blade.  Not a major problem, the hand is still functional, but tightly gripping anything is kinda  a no-no.  Nine stitches

One upside Richard is the skin on the palm usually heals pretty fast. Ive had some nasty looking gashes on my palm that healed up nicely in a week or two with no trace.

Why not?  You scared of needles?  I called my Dr. two minutes after it happened, and was home in an hour. to finish what I was doing.  Jeez!

Sorry to hear about your finger, no one said milling wood was for sissies. I'm sure you'll be back at it soon, gives you a chance to stock up on great logs.

Is that white oak big enough to quarter saw? That would be neat to have curly quarter sawn white oak.

Did you get a chance to start on that curly hard maple? I was excited to see that on sliced open.

I have plain cut one curly white oak log and I have two more curly white oak logs to cut. You need aleast a 24” log to QS and the ones I have are around 15” or so.

After lunch my wife and I will be cutting the curly hard maple.

Bmac you can’t see the curls in fresh cut lumber coming off the mill. Let it dry for a few days and the curls start to show up or you can plane it and see the curls. This hard maple curly.

That’s pretty curly in my opinion. I would say that’s as good as any of the curly soft maple that I send you.
