    How about kiln drying small pieces in a kitchen oven, or what about a small home made kiln? These are from a summer stump, cut on a table saw, and oven-dried.

    $500, 18 years ago, for a tough access stump.

    I read that as Fancy Tree Work, plain camera work. No drones, hollywood effects, POV cams, cams being launched with tops.

    Looking for advice. I'm finding a bunch of figured wood lately. Trying to preserve blocks cut from stumps, and burls. Maple has a lot of figure and burl. Madrona had root burl, which I haven't looked into yet, but will be on the look-out. Stump blocks have less obvious end-grain, and pieces of wood are all different shapes from being cut out of stumps. When the end-grain was more evident on some blocks from this summer, I got it all painted. Is there a way around this? Maybe I need to use a sprayer rather than brush. Someone here mentioned this for some application. http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=20048&cat=1,43456,43390 Right now, I'm cutting a lot of spalted and burl maple blocks out of a huge stump. A pressure washer has been more of a help than I could have imagined. Lots of sharpening. Found a few good sized rocks, and a few hidden inclusions with pockets of small gravel. Learning as I go.

    Sunny here, two days in a row. Hi in the upper 40s, maybe 50. Going to finish cutting a stump. Should get some nice stump blocks of spalted and/ or figured maple. Pressure washer and chain grinder going to the jobsite. Hoping to turn into stuff like http://www.ebay.com/bhp/spalted-maple. Going to put my new bandsaw "tire" on the wheel, and I should be ready to cut up some stuff. Learning all the way.

    Seems like a cribbing thread could hold its own. I'm curious how people manage slopes. When I ran a bucket, the manual said no more than 5 degree slopes, IIRC. The lift was spec'd for 2 outriggers, but it was built with 4. Versa-lift. We set up level, but the flat metal outriggers were right on asphalt. Do outrigger pads give better traction? We were mostly on flat enough ground but ran into some wet, sloping pavement on occasion. How steep of a slope is spec'd by different manufacturers?

    How steep of pavement can a crane safely set up on, if cribbed to be level?

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gateway_Arch Thought I'd double check my trivia... They used hoses to spray the arch with water to fight thermal expansion in order to install the keystone at the top. I went up in it as a kid. As I recall, the thing we rode in (maybe seated???) Moved up, then sideways, up, sideways.

    I might anchor it uphill with a chain to something solid, to give me a bit more piece of mind, before flying.

    i can see how a bag could rupture. Some Japanese sometimes don't like to spur trees they're removing, as it disrespectful, apparently from Jay's anecdotes. They do weird things over there, including sandbag plus wood cribbing. I suspect pics are in the Paul's/ PCTree's Grove crane thread.

If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.
