My "BIG" wood gloat.

I've been working on this all week and just got to bring this home today. It's some beautiful Flame Box elder. There is about 2000lbs of wood on the trailor. I almost didn't have enough room for the tractor. Now the fun part is coming up. Getting it all cut into smaller pieces. The tree is 35 plus inches wide.

If'n you have too much, I'd be more than happy to help you dispose of some of that. ;-)

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...
