    after new carb and fuel pump, new set of blades from wood mizer and much wrangling, i started the mill today. mostly to cut rounds out of the plum graft unions/crotch that i bought. also cut some california pepper and some willow acacia. each of those graft union/crotches, net about 6 bisquit slabs, aprox 15 to 20" across, about 1 and 3/4 inch thick. i got about 100 of them from a local guy who has a charcoal and smoker wood business

    these are the california pepper. nearly always heavily spalted. and nearly always destroys itself when drying

    i have a pepper that died and dried whole standing, it's not quite as impressive once it's dry, buy the whole dried log will cut slabs/boards that could be turned into pot calls readily. some potential that it might need to be stabilized. what dimensions do you need

    not overly priced, what do you normally pay for spalted maple like that

    Figure what you want for a couple of those and a couple of the acacia if you're willing to part with it.

    Beautiful stuff! It’s a shame that the pepper tree self-destructs... love the coloring and contrast.

    cut some willow acacia today
    made 3+ inch thick turning blocks, cut 1" boards on either side of the piths, and slabbed at 2" thick one small log.
    though the 1" thick boards are not shown they'll be good for pot calls
