Great score. For years Elm got a bad wrap because it was so hard to split. Enter hydraulics. Great wood, burns hot, etc...View attachment 6929610
After Church this morning I was out looking to get some ground ready for a food plot and I noticed a dead Elm tree just standing there. Now if you burn wood you know that when you see a dead Elm it has to be cut. It does not matter that it is 96 degrees out, because that tree will disappear if you don't get it right then. Went back to the house, got my saw stuff loaded up and as luck would have it, it was still there when I got back. My bride said something to the effect of how hot it is, but she knows.
Q. Can I keep elm as firewood?
A. No. Storing elm as firewood, a major factor in spreading Dutch elm disease, is
I can understand them not wanting it transported out of an area that’s known to carry the disease, but a dead tree close by or on your property ? Probably more to the story than I understand.
It was an acrylic product that my buddy had left over from his job. Built a border with cedar, placed the non uniform wood (it was drift wood I collected and cut on a band saw) dropped in a couple of photos and some challenge coins and poured it in. I repositioned some of the pieces and the first pour and waited about 20 minutes. Poured the rest even with the boarder. Used some light Emory clothe (wet) on the surface after a few days and followed that with some fine steel wool. It looked great.Decoy
What did you use to “seal” it?
I am trying to think of products that might work and all that thinking causes discomfort betwixt my ears today.
New house on the horizon and this would be an awesome floor in there somewhere. Probably would need a new saw.......
Taught my 11 year how to set them, just watch the cable and don't get your fingers in there.Forgive my ignorance, but how does that choker work? How do you get it around the log?
This is where I want the "I like this a LOT" button.Taught my 11 year how to set them, just watch the cable and don't get your fingers in there.
The cable is stiff enough to push under a log, poke a stick under it to open it up if needed. It won't let me unload a vid so here are some photos.
Slide it down the cable

Feed the cable around the log
Slide the cable end through the hole in the choker

Pull the cable back through the choker at a angle, it will nest into the choker

Get it a pull and it will set tight on the log.

Be careful on a tractor or whatever you are using to yard it out, you can tip really fast. Faster than you think. Good luck I hope this helps.
Never a dumb question when gun safety is concerned and yarding trees is in the same category. Better safe than sorry, I would rather take a little time to save someone a bunch of pain.
some where, i am going to do that[/QUOTE
Barney , really, thanks for all your great finds.
I have gotten the approval from the war room to do that here in the produce market, ill take a couple photos to show you how cool that it will be here.
i built everything very square and straight horizontal, the floor in profile rounds will put it over the top
I can supply all you want you want too for free, just come pick it all up and it's yours! My pup will even help you collect it. Hell I even give you a dollar per truck load!Looking forward to seeing / reading about the project mate but please do not source the materials from here: it would be cheaper for me to supply from Australia.......
If you look hard enough you can find some cypress down around you and use the stump for some really cool bigger shapes. Then fill in around them with other materials.i hearded dat...
we have a mokey puzzle tree down in manate county, im going to grab a branch about 3 to 4 inches in dia and see if the profile is cool enough
