Oak stump

Sorry I haven't started a new thread in a while....we've been BLESSED with construction work!!!!! and haven't done any sawing BUT we have collected some OLD logs.....I haven't seen any guidelines that say how old/young a log has to be OR how long or how it can/has to be stored.....We collected some cedar (smoke house age ???), a small mixed wood crib (stored/stacked 2 different times the last time approx 1950), 2 very partial cabins (about destroyed from lack of maintaining )which have been stored/stacked since approx 1790-1800 by TN first settlers. Pictures on a later thread. One cabin lathe was very unusual for this area....it was nailed on BUT the roofing/shingles/slate was wood pegged...imagine hand drilling them every 4-6" apart on a roof already framed.

Today while I was bushhogging I drove across a stump in the ground I'd cut the tree from 20+ yrs ago. Stumps are each different in how they rot out, not only by species but also soil content and/or coverage of soil. This being red oak I didn't expect this much being left or intact....this was a 36" on the stump log....don't let the pic fool you, after all the years in the ground it's still spreading 36" + at tips. Surprising it flipped up as a whole But was tough to hand load onto my cutter.
This will make a pretty base.

Yes, I would also like to see.

BTW, sorry that our schedules didn't line up when I was passing through. Hopefully, I will catch you guys another time.
