As usual, I have been fairly busy during my time at home, and I haven't had the time in the workshop that I had hoped and expected.
Instead I have been busy sawing larch logs into planks to be used for our porch project some time in the future.
A friend of mine had downed some whitebeam trees on his property, and asked if I could saw them into planks on the mulesaw.
I have been sawing yesterday and today, and the wood looks really nice.
The interesting thing is that I can't find the species mentioned on the wooddatabase.
In Danish it is called: seljerøn, the Latin name is Sorbus Intermedia.
As far as I have been able to find out, it is mostly used for wood turning and carving, At a German Internet page I could see that it had been used for making pins for the German version of bowling (Kegeln).
Previously it was used for cogs on gear wheels in wind mills. So it must be fairly hard.
If anyone knows of any other uses it would be interesting to hear about them.
I'll see if I can get Gustav to shoot a video of me sawing them tomorrow.
