I cut some live edge slabs out of a piece of oak on my stationary chainsaw lumber mill.

I am hauling home logs for fire wood but this one was a bit wider and had a unique shape so I saved it from the fire and put it aside.

I got it on the lumber mill the other night but a thunderstorm came on fast and I had to wrap it up in a hurry before I got the chainsaw running.

The next day I was right out there when I got a chance to cut open this slab of oak and see what it looks like inside.

I shaved off the first two thin pieces to open up the wood inside and see the wood grain and patterns. It is absolutely beautiful.

I cut off two inch thick slabs until I could cut no further. I hit the bottom of the rails.

But I got an idea. It looked like there was another possible two inch thick slab to be gotten off this log so I turned it over and cut it flat on the mill.

This gave me a flat surface to attach a 2x8 board which I can clamp onto the mill. I flipped the log and board assembly over and clamped it down. Now I was able to get another slab off.

This left me with less than one inch waste on the bottom. And the grain and colors are so beautiful I may end up using this as well for something.

Now the hard part is waiting for this wood to cure before I can use it.
