Slabbing the block

Taking a crack at carving a tree from a block of what I think is Trembling Aspen. One thing is for certain, when cutting with the grain on this wood, you need a really sharp chain, as you will see in the video.

I can’t say the wood is harder than spruce or fir, it just seems to have a different feel to it. Its like cutting through a block of room temperature butter and a block of butter right from the fridge. You know you are going to be able to cut through it, you just have to be a little bit more careful handling the knife.

So here’s an edited video. Overall it took about 20 minutes from start to finish, not including the tune up of the Husq saw with a new chain for slabbing.
