Milling up a Burly Laurel Oak Slab

Timelapse from Ole General Store of a five-ton, 5’x10′ oak log getting milled into slabs. Took three men, a custom mill and a small Caterpillar with forklift attachment 9 1/2 hours to get the job done. Each slab weighs in around 500 pounds.

I’m not a huge woodworking guy, but the results are really fantastic–someone’s going to make some really nice furniture out of that thing.
