Nice, Tim.  But you could expand a bit on an explanation and more pictures.

Greg,

That was just a teaser......The tree trunk is the largest Honey Locust tree in the state of WV by a foot in diameter......It was being cut down by a tree service as I was driving by.......it had gotten into the sewer system......BTW...this tree will never rot.....it will rot when growing but not after it is down.....It took a week to peel with chain saws......nothing else would touch it......then we ground it with grinders.......No sharp edge tool would cut the notches even on a lower angle....it just bent the sharp edges back......the lower platform is a limb from this monster.......it weighs about 8000#'s as my 9000# loader grappled with it......Treehouse #2 pics will be posted here shortly....just completed.

Greg, Detail is in the details isn't it? So many things going on at the present.....Milled some Catalpa this past week and am blown away and I have access to 40k feet in logs....it doesn't rot in contact with the ground....it mills like butter.....looks like butternut......strong and lighweight.....a carvers dream....Plus we are doing a full blown restoration on a log dance hall built in the 40's which is now a private residence on 860 acres 5 miles from my house on a private lake. Physical work is good for the soul.

Be safe out there, Tim
