Log 20, Sassafras, black-heart.

Log 20, Sassafras, black-heart.   A large log from storage with black-heart at each end, larger at the butt end which has large twisting rounded ridges, for half its length.  Large trimmed limbs and bumps are also obvious and it has a wide split across the butt end.  It should be milled in two pieces to increase timber recovery, which can be expected in large piece sizes.  No visible pin hole borer activity.  Length 4.7 metres, butt diameter 63 cm, head diameter 47 cm, volume 1.11 cubic metres, weight about 1200 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.
