Etter at barken var fjernet, stod oppsaging til mindre emner for tur. Siden treverket er langt fra tørt, ble det ganske tung saging for båndsaga. Brukte mitt groverste blad (3 tpi med bred tooth set) og gikk forsiktig frem.
Resultatet ble 6 fjølemner (e.l.) og 4 emner for dreiing mellom senter (små bokser, lysestaker m/m).
Så er det bare å vente til de blir tørrere og se hva de bringer med seg :)
Yesterday i peeled and sawed up two solid pieces of birch. They're both from a huge tree that stood in the garden and were cut down this summer. On one of them there was also a small burl. Exciting.
After the bark was removed I sawed them into smaller blanks. Since the wood is far from seasoned, it was a quite heavy work load for my bandsaw. I used my roughest blade (3 tpi with wide tooth set) and worked cautiously.
The result was six board blanks (etc.) and 4 blanks for turning between centers (small boxes, candleholders etc.).
Now I just have to wait until they're dry. Then we'll see what they can be used for. :)
