    For Stu's Dungeon and the New Band Saw!

    Just so you don't run out of wood to play with Stu.

    Don,

    Last week on another WW forum someone posted a pic of a large tree felled in the early 20th. I wanted to reply to the post with this picture you have posted today. I did a search for largest douglas fir Vancouver but came up empty handed. I remember this one from FWW or Woodwork magazine several years back. Great shot. Felling it was probably the easy part.

    I got it from an old copy of FWW a friend found at a yard sale.

    Incredible and, in a way, kinda sad. But it is a good record of history. Hafta wonder what all them wimmen's and children are doing there.

    My BIL's grandmother's father ran a sawmill, she's around 85. We were unloading some FAS cherry once and she happened buy. My BIL and I were talking about how good the lumber looked. His grandmother stopped and was watching. After a little while she said "daddy would cull lumber like that".
