My friend wanted a bar top(s) She understood that I had just got the saw mill about 3 weeks ago and the slab could crack. She liked the idea of some character from the cracking. So I cut her some slab for a bar/ counter top. I was VERY impressed with the sweetgum tree and how awesome the color and grain came out.
The pieces where approx. 17 on one end and 21 the other. Slabs where 2 inches thick. It was two slabs at about 10ft long to make the total of 18ft
Thousand... well it felt like it. Estimate time around 15 minutes per slab. I dont think I could of done dimensional lumber with my chainsaw setup. So saving producing the lumber around $4000
