    is it a Silver lining???

    tom, made a comment the other day about how some folks seem to trip over nice wood some days,, well i might be tripping again but need to hear from you folk on what to do.. i have a lead on a 54" base silver maple that is around 6ft to the first crotch and there are 3 or four of them there.. that go up and make more crotches above.. so here is my diliema, i got to much wood, but its like like walking past a bakery and not buying a donut..i think them spinny guys like turning maple and this stump log could have some real nice stuff in it.. as for the baby crotches thats just spinny folk tender.. so what say yee great wize ones?? i would need to have it slabbed, but that is within a hour from where the tree is..could even get some lumber logs out of this..tight qtrs and got to drive in detroit area to get it

    Jump on it Larry. You can never have enough nice wood! To me it just makes it easier to get more projects done.

    I'm going to be coming out to northern Indiana in 6 to 8 weeks to move my pretty lady back to Idaho - we'll be renting a truck. I'm sure I could come up to your place prior to loading and relieve you of a few boards.
