Thank you dpatton. I'm not sure when she starts my work week since I've been at it 7 days a week for about 3 months now. I've always worked a lot  but this has gotten out of hand. I've been thinking about the fact that I've been working too much and I miss my family time. I'm going to try and take pa walnuts advice and slow down a little.  Not so much for the wife's sake, she misses me but we still have our late dinners together and get an hour or two of time every night. She is very understanding and supportive and says one of the reasons she was attracted to me was because of my work ethic and dedication to being succesful. What I'm really missing is my kid time . We had boy and girl twins on Halloween last year and baby boy just started crawling and girl isn't far behind. These two are kid 9 and 10 for us and will be my last kids. The 6 months to two years has always been my favorite time with the kids and I'm really missing a lot more of it than I'd like. When life is all said and done no one ever says they should have worked more and spent less time with family.

What does your customer use the Hemlock for? 
I have Hemlock all over the place, most of which has died from the Woolly Adelgid.  I hate to see so much resource rotting away but every time I cut it, regardless of how I cut it or how big, it always twists and turns into almost useless wood.  
Go to work?  Probably Knott.  Because I cant.

Words of wisdom for sure!! I suspect that during the entire history of human existence, a man never uttered the words, "I wish I had sawn one more log." while on his deathbed. :D It's very easy to loose sight. I recently read something on here that struck me kinda profound, "Gathering memories in life is far more important that gathering possessions." It's a good re-aligment challenge for me!

I just parked the sawmill for the next month.   I will be volunteering at the Cape Lookout National Seashore.  It is a three week adventure.  My best fiend and bride of 33 years is going with me!

Yes Lynn I am glad I am still at it as I would rest out before I burn out.
I have 2 brothers and they, ages 79 and 69 still work at what they like to do every day.
There was no laziness in my family.
Especially i would miss the forumites and THE PIG ROAST  and also a good number that have been banned for whatever reason.
As for the Hemlock use, it is used for construction dimension stock and siding boards and battens, general construction uses. It is very strong stuff.
My Hemlock here dries straight and flat in the covered stacks, but once in a great while I have to give a board to the customer that doesnt make spec.

Yesterday, I tried sawing parallel to the bark for a change. I wanted to see how this 2" thick slab would turn out. I am hoping to sell it as a bar top or some other such thing.

Finished cutting the poplar and got that stickered up.

 
Then I started cutting up a little sassafras. I really like the grain patterns in the sassafras.

The roof was all prepped to start laying shingles, but the roof didnt show up. So, we fired up the mill and played around with making some 3 1/2 lap siding to replace some of the stuff on the garage that was no good. Ended up using a 1/4 shim and set the set works at 3/8 and 9/16 and the siding turned out good with one edge at 3/16 and the other at 1/2. Once we got a system down, it went pretty fast.
