Quarter-Sawing our Oak trees

~OLD POSTS, news
(please click title to view images) Here we see Austin quartering the last of the Oak trees from our latest shipment, using our Husqvarna 120xp chainsaw and quartering jigs. This tree was over 33" in diameter and showed off some fantastic figuring, it has primarily been planked in to 1/2" (our speciality) to be used for panelling aswell as some beautiful 1" boards, that has all now been stacked and sticked under cover to air season. The 1/2" will be ready for use in 6-8 months and the 1" in 1-1 1/2 years, we will be keeping an eye on the moisture content (M/C) until then, and we are really looking forward to continue using the best quarter-sawn oak available anywhere!
