The cant is now ready to be milled in half. Please note the wane located on the cant corners. I purposely left the timber large to create a flat milling surface, remove weight, and narrow the cutting width without over cutting. One of the disadvantages of using big timbers is the possibility of making a wrong cut and ruining the timber. Tossing away a miscut 2X4 is much cheaper. We''re aiming for the heart wood.
