    Watch the leaves when they go red. They show the fungus among us.

    If you look at the maple leaf when it turns red, sometimes there are dark lines that look like spalting patterns.

    I have cut up some prunings from trees with this marking on the leaves and found spalted wood within.

    Fungus is what causes the spalting to begin with, no fungus, and you get regular old wood grain.

    just hope it's a friendly creature. I took the wood over to mom's place to show her how it came out and when I was gathering up my stuff to go home, she asked me to leave it so she could show her friends. So it spent the night at her house. At 91, I am not sure she could escape an attack by a wood creature.
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    Missed this thread--I have been interested in this too, although we have less wood to play with.

    We took down a big white oak that was too close to the house (it had started to crack the foundation), and I tried to find someone local who who would slab it on site, but could find anyone. It's firewood now, but I wished I could have saved it for something.

    That said, I see lots of live edge dried stuff on FB marketplace--all the bush guys north of us seem to have portable mills or one of these chainsaw dohickeys, so if the need arises, I may just buy the stuff cut (I also don't have a couple of 18" chainsaws lying around!)

    My small project is rescuing some black walnut (!) that came in the load of firewood my brothers bought me for Christmas--short splits, so I will have to be careful with the planer. Wished I had a bandsaw to rough cut a flat side to start...

    actually the chainsaw mill does a reasonable job on a whole log, I paid 70 bucks for it. Northern tools.

    I don't think many people will scroll to the bottom of the page to see this, bad timing, but I approve and endorse this thread.

    Looks impressive, I like it. The chainsaw is also looks great and vintage. By the way, can you tell me is it possible to make a similar set of rails for metal cutting? I read tool reviews and thinking to get a saw like this. All I need to do after is to install it this way.

    Saw isn't vintage, it's just old! Lol. I bought it brand new in like 1982 or 83? First order of business was to liberate my other saw, pinched in a tree. As for metal cutting, not a clue. My metal work is on a much smaller scale.
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....
