A couple days ago a friend called me knowing I have a chainsaw and said a tree fell on their car and would I help. It was starting to get dark but off I went. On the way there I’m hoping the tree is something other than oak or pine or at least something not as common, you know what I mean. Anyway I get there and yes the car has a lot of damaged, the tree is all over it and we begin to cut it up.

My first cut and I said what kind of tree is this? Flowering Pear he answered. OK That’s different and cutting away I went. I ended up with more than 30 logs of different diameter and about 20’’ in length. Good for me but I felt sorry for him. Here’s what I ended up with after giving some away and splitting with my brother. I turned one to see just what they would look like. Very hard and dense.

I also threw in a mickey mouse walnut, a couple oaks, and not sure of the first pic..

Thanks for the comments guys. I’m going to slice up a couple on the band saw and some will be turned on the lathe. The pictures aren’t showing any justice cause there is a pink,red hue to it when freshly cut. That’s what I’m going for. ————-Jim, I anchor sealed right away after cutting. Didn’t want to loose any of these.
