I also got the chainsaw out to play. Last year I obtained a few large cherry wood logs from a friend. I decided it was time to start turning the logs into something more usable. I used the chainsaw to square out cubes from the center of each log. The cubes will wait in dry storage until I am ready to carve something from them.

Then the chainsaw and other tools were used to mill the sapwood / bark cutoffs into small pieces of craft wood boards for small projects. I may have plans for these boards but I need to finish up a few projects before I start another one.
