Milled a large Green Ash, Fraxinus pennsylvanica, log last week, which was recovered near Fall River, Kansas a little over a year ago.
Five 2.5″ slabs and two 1.25″.
Me holding one of the boards. The grain, although hard to see in the pictures is very nice.
Here are two different 3-legged stools, in Green Ash.
This one has a handle, like a milking stool.
An Ash plate, bowl, walnut bowl, and a small persimmon dish.
A carpenter ant infested green ash crotch being milled using a piece of heavy aluminum C-channel on sawhorses as a guide for the first cut. Also the standard 20 inch bar on the Stihl 039 has been replaced with a 24 inch bar and a rip-cut milled chain. The extra four inches and a new bar make a big difference in getting good true and flat cuts.
It would have been better had it not been filled with a colony of carpenter ants, but still nice wood.
A little better towards the edge, just not as interesting.
Two new bowls in green ash. The one on the left was turned by my wife.
A section of one of the many Ash logs in my yard waiting to be milled.
A trailer load of Green Ash logs to be milled. We had to split the big one to get it loaded, but it will be quarter sawn, anyway.
Unloading with the hook and the WD.
