This stump is on my wife’s land in Mendocino County. A neighbor who has a horizontal bandsaw mill is going to haul it to his property and cut it for us but before he does I wanted to ask the community what is the best way to make use of and cut this beautiful old wood? Radial, rift, Quarter? I am not a woodworker yet, but am starting to learn and put together a shop and want to make something like tables? with this in a year or two. Just don’t want to do a disservice to this beautiful old wood. Our neighbor says that while there is a lot of rotten wood there is also a lot of “sweet” wood to be had in this piece.

Split it radially into billets.
