||With more than 64 species of wood in Ohio, woodworkers have a great opportunity to salvage and use wood from local blown down and dead trees. Join tree farmer Randy Sanders to learn how he turns blowdown and dead trees into slabs, flitches, picture frames, benches and other one of a kind products. Using a power point presentation and wood examples, Randy will discuss the process and show what equipment is needed to log, mill and dry the wood and work with slabs and flitches. Learn how to have a log milled to produce flat sawn, quarter sawn and book matched flitches, or edged lumber. Also learn about the unique and beautiful wood from native and rarely used trees like redbud, black locust, persimmon and sassafras and how to find a sawmill. Benefits from salvaging wood from local dead trees include - lower costs, controlling if chemicals are used in the process, specialized cuts, and beautiful one-of-a-kind final products. The class will consist of approximately 3 hours of slides and 1 hour of Randy talking and showing how he makes products out of the slabs and flitches.
