My friend Jim wanted to try moving a massive log that we had cut a few years ago and he figured slabbing it would be a good project for me. So we hauled this 6,000lb log from the forest to my backyard and over the course of a few weeks, I took slice after slice off of it. I am using a Panther Mill II with my Stihl 046. My 42″ bar when mounted in the mill gives me around 35″ of cut width if I remove the dogs from my saw.

To start things off, I’ll make the panel which will become the sides and top. While that’s sitting in the clamps, I’ll prep the material
