Log 10, Sassafras, black-heart / spalted.

Log 10, Sassafras, black-heart / spalted.   A short curved log with a very twisted shape and one large limb.   The heart at the butt end is located near one edge but is central at the head end.  It was harvested a few months ago and has a few pin borer exit holes.  Of course it will need to be milled in two lengths to recover a low percentage of timber.   Length 2.7 metres, butt diameter 59 cm, head diameter 54 cm, volume 0.66 cubic metres, weight about 725 kg.   IST Geeveston could mill this log to order on their Woodmizer bandsaw mill at $180 per hour, contact chris.emmmett@sttas.com.au if you have any questions.
