Recent Woodworking Project

I started with a white oak log 24" in diameter and 6' long. Slabs of bark and sapwood were removed by sawing on 4 sides leaving a "cant" 18 inches X 16 inches. Next I sawed through the middle creating two pieces 8" thick by 18" wide. I then chainsawed the two pieces to reduce their lengths to 60".

Next, one end on each piece was elevated to cut an incline. The pictures here show the steps.

These two ramps will be used for a straight truck to drive its rear wheel onto so the truck bed will be level with a shipping/receiving dock at a distribution warehouse.

Have a good week!
