And you didn't even skin your elbows, I am impressed. Did you do that on one battery?
Herb
Nope, no skinned elbows, but when I was changing out bits, one of those little stinkers bit me pretty good on the back of my hand!

I would say it was two, Herb. The first battery was a little one, and Ken changed it out when he thought it sounded like it was getting low (but I don't think it was). The second one actually stopped in the middle of a cut, resulting in Ken changing to the third. That's the funny thing about my cordless; when it's done, there's no warning. It's done, and it just STOPS. Like someone put a brake on; that's been one of the things we've had to adjust to going from corded to cordless: When you turn off a cordless, the turning stops on a dime. When turning off a corded machine, it stops gradually.

Barb, how long had the tree been cut down. Was the stump still green? I have seen stumps stay green for a long time because it takes awhile for the roots to die. Once they die at the surface they start to crack badly. That one appeared to have some dead heart wood when it was alive, but no large cracks.

When he asked me in May, Herb, it had been cut down a week or so, I want to say. It had been partially taken out by a storm we had (having a large limb land on his car) so he had it removed.

**Update**

Thank you. It was a fun if not exhausting afternoon. He finally sent me the picture of the stump after he put on the poly. Here's the final look:

Wow, that's fantastic workmanship! The pictures with you and your router next to the stump give a better idea of the size...that is a huge stump! 👍
