The Log Fairy

Today I got the remainder of my logs. I got 2 White Oak, 2 Red Oak, and 11 Maple altogether. The maples aren't real great but they'll do just fine for getting some legs, stretchers and arm stumps out of. After my "Log Guy" brought these to me today, I chainsawed one of the red oaks into a 6 foot length and it was a beauty. The pith (center of the tree) is almost perfectly dead center and the bark shows no waves or knots. I should have no trouble whatsoever getting spindles and/or bends out of it. I will have to pick and choose on the maple but out of 11 logs I'm sure I will find what I need for quite some time.
