    Steve, just another bandsaw. May not work for your application but is interesting.

    It would seem to me that rather then having the whole jig have to roll back and forth that you could make it so that you have a sled that held the log and moved it past the blade line in a miter slot kind of like a meat slicer

    Crosscutting logs? You need a biiiig chopsaw. Seriously, much quicker than a bandsaw for smaller diameters like the coasters.
    You can buy a huge circle saw blade like the sawmills use and set up a dedicated crosscutter with a log sled. Just make sure the motor is strong enough.
    Depending on how far you wanted to go you could push/pull the sled with steppers or hydraulics.

    First woodshop I worked in made cable spools and the area where logs were processed into the planks was the old fashioned one big motor, shaft, and leather belts to drive everything.
    They had several 24" blades in a row that came down and crosscut all at once. Scary looking till you got used to it. Logs were mostly slash pine so the diameters weren't huge. Not exactly fine woodworking stuff.

    On refacing we just use a piece of ply with appropiate holes, drop in stuff to be sanded and run it thru the drum sander. Only used square stuff but it should work with cookies. If it lifts I would add a bit of vacuum to each cavity.

    Steve,
    How were you finishing those?
    Tried my normal 50/50 citrus solvent/polymerized Linseed and the thinner took Black Walnut heartwood/bark color and got into the sapwood for a noticeable lack of contrast
    Thinking 100% polymerized Tung, but worried cracks and crevices in bark will be sticky.
    Not to worried about the coaster sized ones I'm playing with, but hoping to hand saw some of the larger ones from my Aunt's tree for 3D display stands, and they'll have to be NICE. NEED to buy a resaw!
    Thanks

    Scott:
    sorry about taking so long to answer... we're roaming around the country in our camper, staying away from the Dallas heat!
    I never put any finish on any of my cookies, not at the price we were getting!
    let me know what you land up doing in case I ever need to!

    No problem Steve
    If you land anywhere near southern Maine, there's a water/electric hookup(or a California King and Master Bath) waiting for you on a Beaver pond
    Funny, I coated the ends of that B.Walnut that had been cut down 4 days before with Linseed/beeswax and had no checking as expected, but also had zero checking on the 5 3/8" slices I did absolutely nothing to. BUT the 12" remnant of the branch I cut them off of checked like crazy in just 3 days with nothing on it?
    Getting a few more branches today, and some firewood sized chunks tomorrow for displays.
    Keep you posted.
