Wow Nice.
A friend of mine is making some live edge tables from White Bark pine.
These trees were bug killed, one tree I have is over 200 years old and is only 12''
She dose wood burning and has finished on peace and is still working on a table with a whole mtn scene.
They are for sale if any one is interested, 5% go's to the forum or what ever percentage it is.
She say she can do almost any thing. When I get a photo of the table I will post.

Both redbeard and MT406's projects are very artistic to say the least.   :)

Our local game processor was at the house and asked what I did with this stuff and that he wanted a bunch of it for putting a rustic look on his shed. Between this and probably a couple elk sheds it looks to me like my elk is getting cut up for free again. Everyone's happy. ;D
He told me a few folks have stopped wanting to take pictures and his wife likes it enough that she wants a fence to suit it.

Cut some ERC not long ago, the customer put it to use as a chest and sided the interior of a room for clothes and hunting gear storage.

Not really a customer but a really good friend. He's a heavy equipment operator and is always getting logs for us so I cut lumber for him in exchange for some logs. He and I went to high school together back in Northern New York and didn't know until a few months ago we were living a half a mile apart here in Alaska. I cut a bunch of his spruce logs and few cedar poles (the 6x6's) for this car port on the rental they just bought. He used to have a big circle mill back east and has taught me a lot about sawing.

 

 
I was young and dumb once. I got over being young a long time ago.

I resawed some old oak timbers for a customer who wanted them squared to 6x8 so he could crosscut them on his miter saw. Said he was going to tile a floor with them. Last night he emailed me a picture of his finished floor. How neat is that?

A customer just sent me in some pictures of a table he made and sold out of a slab of maple I sold him.
And the legs are some pieces of walnut he got from me also.

Here are some of the photos:

 (Image hidden from quote, click to view.)

The top was from a tree from Gloucester, MA and the walnut came out of the same log I got the bowl planks from, I think.

This guy has just bought a house with a huge barn in Southern NH, where he will be making furniture in a shop there and selling custom made stuff.
He is going to get more maple slabs from me and make more tables.
When I visit his shop/showroom, I'll take some more pictures.

Jim Rogers

PS. the piece of glass appears to be inlaid so that it is flush with the maple top surface.

If you look back to this post, and see the table with the piece of glass in it, I'll tell you a story about it.
A lady came to see me about getting some lumber for a fence or something like that. And she saw the round edge pieces of pine boards that I was stacking up to be edged later on into regular square edge lumber.
She asked me what was going to happen to these pieces. I told her.
She said she saw online somewhere a table that had a piece of glass in-laid between two pieces of round edge slabs.
I told her I knew of this table as one of my customer's made it.
She called it a "river" table.
She said the two round edge pieces made the "banks" of the river and that the glass was the water.
She said she was an artist and she was always doing some different things with wood.

Later that day she called me again and wanted to come back and buy some of the round edge pieces to make up a table top.
She did and I sold her some.
I haven't seen the finished product but I thought it was an interesting story.
