Here's the cabinet I'm thinking needs a friend. Thinking curly ambrosia Maple for the doors and drawers this time.

This one was walnut I harvested and some store bought curly Maple block.

That looks far better with the strait rails and stiles.

Thanks. Most people look at me and ask why it's in my shop. I open it and they got it. It's way too pretty to be in here, but I spend the most time here and enjoy it here more than I could anywhere else in the house.

Bought a bit over 3200 bd.ft. of QSWO this year for the house. That tree might have made all of my 5 1/2 inch base instead of having a pile of 8 footers.

That’s alot of QSWO lumber.

I have just about quit cutting QS oak lumber the woodworkers want buy it. Maybe it will come back someday.

Well if you can't sell QSWO than I wouldn't buy that log for $4300!

Are you able to get your curly logs cheap? What I mean is, does the seller realize they are what they are or do they not see what you see?

Nothing nicer working or better to look at as far as I'm concerned, although QS sycamore is pretty nice.

I agree, QSWO is one of my favorites

I was just showing that white oak log. That log going over the big pond.

I get the curly logs at the log market price.

Rickey, the $4,300, is that how much you will make from it? 

No, if you want to buy that white oak log in the pic that’s the price of the log at the log yard. I wanted to show you guys what a high dollar white oak log looked like.

Here’s how you would QS this white oak log for QS lumber. The white lines would be how you spilt the log in four quarters. With one quarter on the mill the red lines would be how you cut the QS lumber. You cut one side of the quarter and flip to the other side and cut one board and flip back and cut one board. You can see why you need a big log to QS.

What makes it so valuable overseas? What will they do with it?

We may need to get Bmac to teach a class on making the chairs and rockers. I would like to sit in the back of the class room.

They will make veneer out of it. 1/32 thick. That’s one reason why a American made piece of 4x8 white oak A grade plywood will cost you $100. Box stores sell C3 grade and are 1/60 thick.
