So you're in the unenviable position of needing to deal with 6,000+
bf of quality hardwood? How terrible. With my method, you'd certainly
have splitting headaches.

If you're facing a disposal problem, I can help!

Guys:

 I might do that once, for fun. However, my friend and I had 2,100 bd
ft of
 white oak milled last spring, and are about to have the same amount
of black
 oak and walnut milled when the weather warms up -- already at mill
waiting.
 We did a couple thousand bd ft of walnut and white oak a few years
back.
 Some of the logs weighed around 3,500 lbs.

 Can you imagine riving all that?
