Default I still have all my fingers!! Hooray!

Finally got to chunk up some of the split hickory I got a few weeks ago. The best part of the job...I DIDN'T LOSE A FINGER!!!

After cutting the splits on my miter saw, I have decided that if I ever cut more of my own chunks I will be splitting the logs more than I did this time. A few of the pieces I had to split again by hand so they would fit under the saw blade. Other than that, the job went smoothly, aside from one little miss hap....

A farking bug flew into my face while cutting a split, resulting in what can only be described as projectile hickory. I was just about done with the cut when the bug ran into my face, next thing I knew their was a loud BANG followed by a chunk of hickory landing 30 feet away from the saw. Needless to say, I shat my pants and decide to take a 10 minute break. Luckily there was no major damage to the saw or the blade but man, it scared the daylights outta me.

When bugs weren't flying in my face, every other cut went smoothly. I didn't cut all the hickory that I had because some of it is still going to be used as firewood. I ended up with two medium sized boxes full of a variety of chunks and about half a gallon ziplock bag full of the saw dust to be used for cold smoking (Thanks to AussieTitch for the idea). I promised pics so here they are...

You really have to watch for that, and wear good eye protection. Every once-in-awhile, I have one of those "bang" moments that sends wood flying. I believe it is because the wood is not square, so it doesn't seat flat against the fence. The blade gets to a certain point, and the wood shifts ever so slightly, and BANG, WHOSH!

I didn't either up until Titch suggested it. We are gonna be making deer sausage in a few weeks so instead of having someone else cold smoke it for me I'm gonna do it myself. I'm going to take the dust and but it in a steel chip holder and then place it on a hot plate I'll put in the bottom of my UDS. Should hopefully work like a charm.
