    Walnut don't burn very good.. But if you mix it with the cedar it'd be pretty kool..

    Wood, Tree's. The type you see in alot of closets, or chest/trunk for quilts. Make Bat houses out of it. The stuff you smell in a cedar closet...... Great for wood working, furniture making, etc.

    So Kutter, buy you a grinder. Grind all the logs and buy you a bunch of hamsters. You can use the cedar for bedding. Problem solved

    I'll come by and look at it Tom. I'm pretty sure well take the 20 inch stuff. Always can put that stuff to good use. I have a guy that cuts it up for us. I'll get in touch with you when I have a couple of days.

    Sure, now that I have crappy PINE decks in my boat you come off the cedar for free....:confused2::smile2:

    Wish I was closer, I'd take some off your hands (or yard, as the case may be)

    I'll call my old man, he's fairly close to you guys, does a lot of wood working, and there's a sawmill close to him where he takes some of his trees to get cut into lumber for his projects.

    I could use it for something.....but I have too much junk laying around already! If there was enough to build a few hundred feet of post and rail fence I'd snatch it up.:wink:

    Nah, I'm DONE working on the boat for awhile:big_smile: I may let the ol' man know you have some available - he's always building something for somebody in the family (hope chests, cedar chests, etc) I still love the smell of cedar on bed linen. My grandma used to keep all the sheets and blankets in a cedar chest and that clean sheet/ceder smell reminds me of summer vacations from school at the grandparents'.

    You can never have too much "front-loaded material inventory levels for possible future capital project implementations" lying around:smile2:

    Can't burn it in the woodstove/fireplace, to dangerous on the flue buildup.
    Damn town here won't let me burn it outside. I might save some of the small stuff for the fire pit on the deck, but then again, it sparks so bad when it burns that that might not be too smart. My neghbor has one of those old time homemade BBQ pits that is about 4 ft wide & 3 ft deep, made out of large rocks. He might let me borrow it and, ah, well, I just might burn a tad bit, that one hamburger patty I throw on the grill, and it might take a couple of days to get it cooked juuust right. City can't say anything about me BBQing!:wink::wink:
