Delivery of three highly figured claro walnut logs to our sawmill located in Grass Valley CA. The log on the front of the trailer weighed 6 1/2 tons and measured over 6 feet in diameter. We used a Stihl 090 chainsaw fitted with a five foot bar to break this beauty down for milling. The log was sawn from both sides to complete the cut. The two halves were split again for cutting on our horizonal 48" electric bandsaw mill. The wood from this highly figured claro walnut log will be used in the fabrication of musical instruments; furniture; high-end accessories including exhibition grade gunstock blanks.
