Lumber Cuts

I do not remember where I found this photo, it was online somewhere, so I cannot provide proper credit but I like it well enough to share.  It is a decent example of what cuts of lumber can be taken from a log.  The heartwood makes a nice post while the sapwood layers are sawn for different sizes and types of lumber.  Can you see the quarter-sawn pieces?
