    I would have tried to knock the worst lumps off with a chain saw. This part is slow and rough on the hands etc and what ever you can do to lessen the roughing cuts the better.

    Not to step on your thread but here is another large wood turner, Anatoly Tsiris.

    Anatoly lives in Charlotte and turns tree trunks; not parts of the tree trunk, the whole darn thing.....

    Big Mike does not even want to be in the room when stuff this size is spinning.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.
