A beautifully figured piece that large must have set you back a fortune.

Actually It belongs to Fred.  It is a beautiful piece, a few cracks here and there, but plenty of usable material.  The guy wanted $150, Fred got him down to $100.  I get the pleasure of navigating it through the saw to maximize blank return.  Don't worry, I'm being paid in blanks.  Didn't think of taking the pics until after I cut the first 9 inches off.

I usualy kill um, wait an hour for rigamortice to set in, then you can fit between centres/centers without it sagging too much in the middle. BTW the mouth end is easy, good luck with fitting the other end..... Roll Eyes
