Across the grain

It's about 20 years since I last attempted to carve into a cross section of a tree trunk - now I remember why I've not done it since. Every damn cut is across the grain and the whole thing is a nightmare of interspersed superhard bits and splinters.

Note to self: ALONG the grain. Along is good. Am wondering whether to chuck this dratted piece and start over.
