In this video I’m making lumber from some Canadian Black Walnut logs on a 1992 wood-mizer LT-40HD. I’m flitch sawing the logs keeping the live edge on. Which is not only good for table tops, I get extra lumber that I can use for my chairs because of the curves of the legs, fit the curve of the boards. As always thanks for watching!

Those are some NICE slabs! I am envious of your hydraulics and your helper. As well as that BIG walnut log! I have an LT15 (all manual) and no helper. The 78 1/2” LogRite cant hook my daughter gave me for Christmas is a big help with those bigger logs. But I still love sawing logs. Thanks for sharing your day.

ps: Sawing in the cold and snow is a sport for you younger guys! My logs are covered in snow and are safe until it thaws.
