My friend Roni found me a big piece of maple wood. when I went to go get it, it was bigger than I had thought. I guessed about 500 pounds.  I did manage to get it into my truck by walking it up two wood ramps.  It was only about 10 inches thick. it made the most sense to cut it into slabs for use as table tops at some future date. I was able to cut it into two slabs with my McCulloch super pro 125 chainsaw and Alaska mill.  With it cut, it was clear that one-half of it is probably too rotten to use.  The bean shaped other half looks to be usable.  I think it will make two nice coffee tables with wood turned legs.
