Those logs will make boards like this:

And they can be used like this:

MM - what kind of finish did you use on that ceiling?

No finish at all; planed, T&G, and nailed it up.  That is the ceilings, walls, & flooring in the Cabin mud room.  LINK

He can make it taste like Bacon if he'd hang a piece of it up in his barrel.  :D :D :D :D

I am still waiting on a good explanation on why sometimes sapwood will not turn into heartwood too.

From this article

Quote
The reddish-violet heartwood of Juniperus virginiana L. contains irregularly distributed and longitudinally oriented streaks of light-coloured wood, described as “included sapwood”. A histological study revealed that a blockage of the rays, which is caused by wounds often associated with tiny shakes, branch stubs and included bark, may lead to this anomaly. A study of fresh wood immediately after felling of the trees showed that “included sapwood” lacks physiological activity similar to the adjacent normal heartwood. Cellular UV-spectroscopic analysis revealed a secondary metabolism particularly of phenolic compounds in the pit membranes of tracheids during “included sapwood” formation, whereas the reddish-violet flavonoid compounds do not develop in this anomalous wood. Chemical analyses of petrol ether, diethyl ether, acetone and ethanol/water extracts of sapwood, “included sapwood” and heartwood showed that the accessory compounds cedrol, α-cedrene, widdrol, thujopsene and cuparene increased in “included sapwood” compared to sapwood. As opposed to the reddish-violet heartwood compounds, these sesquiterpenes turned out to be highly toxic against a brown-rot fungus in a bioassay. These findings justify defining “included sapwood” as a heartwood anomaly, since the important wood characteristics of this tissue obey the definition of heartwood rather than sapwood. This anomaly should no longer be a reason to exclude this type of wood from commercial utilisation.

Gotta pay for the whole article. I'm not that curious :D

I was impressed with the guts of these logs.  :) Looks like red lines were actually painted down the sides. I still have not seen anything like these. These belonged to a customer but I ended up trading him 2 for 1 on the lumber. All he was looking for was Cedar to make toys out of. I sawed these slabs 2 inches thick for a table top.
