I have some logs I'm having milled and before I go into questions on the subject here again, does anyone know if there is an existing thread discussing the various ways to have them milled ?
I'm going to have to disagree. I've seen some beautiful QS Red Oak lumber. Years ago, a local farmer gave me a large downed RO tree for firewood. As I cut it up and split the pieces, you wouldn't believe the amount of flecks. Maybe not all ROs are as pronounced as WO, I don't know. I almost cried as I cut up the log. It had lain there too long, though, and was punky. I couldn't even use it as firewood......
My local sawyer also told me about the red not having the nice flecks that the white does. .....
