Sometimes you got to depart from the well-worn trail. Wifey wanted a post with a fork but that was milled on all sides. :blink:

So I wrestled this red oak around til I got what she wanted.......












I fooled around a little more that night ........


but decied I need more firepower. So the next morning I fired up the German Chainsaw . . . .


Then I fired up the Italian wife . . . .


My Jedi training comes in real handy when I need to repel sawdust.


That's as far as it is right now. Gonna let her dry out through the winter. Maybe I will remember to show the final result. Looks like junk right now but I see a diamond in the rough. :w00t:

That A nice chunk of timber. What kind of wood is it and what you going to make with it?

Oh, that is cool. My experiments are along the lines of what you are doing. I have figured out how to make my Ripsaw mill cut curves using bender board as the guide beam. I was planninng on cutting curved timbers with it but a couple of those forks with curved sides may be nice too.

I'm curious also about what the final project is going to be. I know you said a post, so would guess a decorotive support post ?

At least you got the wife to help with it. My wife has lots of ideas for things for me to do, but have a hard time getting her to help me with them.
