I didn't get any but there were a couple of people there asking if they could have some for firewood.  I told them to take what they want,  Burlkraft wouldn't mind.

Hey all, had a great visit with Chris Browne on Thursday night and saw his picture collection as well.  Guess those chains came in handy, huh Burlkraft?  Very well done by all,

That redwood log is still giving up lumber.  :)   Today Tammy and I resawed some 8 inch cants that corley5 brought home.  We also flattened out his slab that was cut off the side of the log so as the slabber could start slabbin.  We had to trim the edges down on the slab so it would go between my guides. It was still a tight squeeze where we had to make a couple "adjustments" as we sawed the length of the slab.  :)That redwood sure do saw nice though.  :)
