    Reply to Maple tree

    Yes he does. But this tree was about 80'+ tall. I didn't get pictures of the logs on the side of the hill. There was a stump about 4' left attached to the root. The root pulled out of the ground was about 10'. It was a big tree!!!!

    Sadly, after I get what I want the rest will be next winters firewood for my son. I might even convince Bruce to take 2 logs to the sawmill he volunteers at and slice some. Hmmm.

    Maple tree
    by will8989
    A maple tree fell on the property next to where my son lives. She didn’t want to pay to have it removed so she had it cut up and gave to my son. I told him he couldn’t cut any until I marked what I wanted....

    No, It is quite soft and sands nicely. It is true, the gain may cause cuts that are not as straight and you can get using other woods, but with diligence I can overcome this problem. I actually cut the long cuts (Front view) with my band saw and the profile with my scroll saw....

    Jim, Is the sugar pine the harder denser grain?

    I use poplar, basswood, butternut and pine. Avoid any knots. They may look cool but often far apart. Pine can be harder to cut then the others because of the pronounced grain which the blade tends to follow.

    I make 3d cut toys by the hundreds. Reindeer, horses, dragons, swans, and angels. I have tried every wood I could think of and found that , although poplar and basswood work well, sugar pine works best. I do not put any finish on them . I know hardwoods finish much nicer than softwoods do....

    For the reindeer I use Mahogany because it is soft enough to cut but finishes nicely. For the min birdhouses I use whatever hardwood I have available. Walnut, Cherry, Mahogany, Alder, Maple. I have even used Redheart, Yellowheart and Purpleheart. And some soft woods like Red Cedar and Reddwood.
