I got a bunch of this Keyaki stuff a while back.........
>> In this thread <<
.......near the end of that thread, I got these large pieces.......
That is #2 daughter Mizuki standing beside the wood, she is about 5'4" tall.
Well, I wrestled the two largest chunks down to the Dungeon for some cutting up......

That is the second biggest chunk and the stack of bowl blanks I got from it.
Now on to the big chunk!

There it is with my small electric chainsaw, I cut it flat-ish on the face to make it easier to process.

I had to see how BIG it actually was....... Maybe not that large compared to some of the stuff done elsewhere, but for me, in the Dungeon, it is fairly big.....
OK, at this point, I was not really looking forward to cutting this with my small electric chainsaw, so I dug out the BEAST

This saw is an older Shindaiwa chainsaw, I bought it used, cheap, and boy, does this thing cut.....
It is rather heavy, so for this, it was perfect.
