Log 2, Sassafras, black-heart

Log 2, Sassafras, black-heart.   A fresh round log with a burl but no limbs or bumps.  The butt end has a small black heart pattern while the head end has a larger circle of dark wood. It has a bend near the head end so should be milled in two lengths for better timber recovery.  A few signs of recent pin hole borer at the butt end but no current activity is visible.  Length 4.8 metres, butt diameter 43 cm, head diameter 36 cm, volume 0.57 cubic metres, weight about 625 kg.   IST Geeveston could mill this log to order on their bandsaw mill at $170 per hour, any questions please to chris.emmett@sttas.com.au
