It doesn't matter if it has bug holes that adds character when your making custom furniture wood.

I think that's beech that chris is sitting on. That log would end up as a pallet or tie log around here. Ive seen oak logs ground up by the hundreds because it was cheaper to blow them into the woods than haul them to the mill. Yeah some tom dick or harry with a little wood shop would have had them milled but you don't make much money catering to him. He wants one log.

Only thing worth a **** right now around here is white oak and walnut.
