@CrealCritter - Getting back into this thread as we get back into working with our sawmill. Haven't been back through the thread, but do you have experience making cutting boards? We were extremely blessed with two big Black Walnut logs and we're making our cabin door, maybe a table or two, and hopefully a handful of cutting boards. I hear mineral oil is good to finish with, maybe a bit of beeswax added? We were finally able to invest in a planer so I am really stoked to see what comes of it. Also, the logs are so massive we are expecting to have leftovers even after that- any ideas for one or two inch thick pieces, not too wide? These monsters were over 20" wide in places, so we will have some excess when we cut it up to foot wide for it to fit in planer. Thought of putting some 1 inch up for maybe jewelry boxes?
