There can be money in it. Around here a red oak log properly quarter sawn can pull in about $500 sold to wood workers or furniture shops. I don't know what kind of trees you have but a little research and you may find some real value.

It's a lot of work compared to basic lumber sawing. Lots of you tube videos on how to do it and maximize product yield. One nice thing about quarter sawn lumber beside it's beauty is it is less likely to twist or warp when drying. So proper air drying under cover produces nice workable wood.

Save your blades and cut through bark as little as possible. It’s a constant trade off between getting the most out of a log and reducing the amount of cuts through bark.
