Thanks fellas, It's a challenge to work out how to approach this log. It's a quartered log so the grain arcs 90 degrees. My current thought is to go for two billets first, one for backs, then cut a sides billet. I'm thinking I can easily get 2 inch thick billets which will give me a good yield of sets. There will be plenty of cut off for fretboards and bridges. I'll end up making some sort of sled to get this monster through the band saw
