I was going to suggest getting a pair of traction soles, but I see you already did (in another thread).
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.
I'm chasing the sawdust dream.

Jim,

You need an outhouse at your mill site so you donít have to take your cleats off. ;)

by the hour. he expected to pay me for a full hour at my previous rate of $75 but as it only took me 6 minutes, four of which we were talking about what he wanted, I only charged him $20

As we mentioned in the other thread, it's easier to just swap boots then to take the cleats on and off a set of boots. And I did that.
To put the cleats on it is easier to do it with the boots off.
And an outhouse at the mill will most likely be coming soon.

All looks good. I even have ice issue around here. ::)  Some are my own doing,as I suppose yours might be. I drive the tractor in the same place and it packs down the snow. Than things melt a little and the grooves fiil in with water and freezes. But just packing it down makes it bad too.

Yesterday's happy customer came over to pick up a single short piece of natural edge white pine board in the middle of a snow storm.
It was 1 inch by 10 inch by 18 inches for a sign over his natural edge home bar.


 
 Thanks Mark

Today's happy customer came buy to pick up a piece of oak for a mantle. It is in their truck 4x8x61 1/2".
They were happy and gave me a very nice tip.



 

I cut a second mantle from the same log for another customer.
4x8x6' with a natural edge.

He should be here Monday to pick it up.

I believe "happy" because all of your customers are smiling.  :)

Today's happy customer got into his truck and was driving away when I remembered I needed a snap shot.
Well, anyway he got a 4" thick x 10" wide by 6' long one natural edge red oak mantle, fresh cut green.

He was happy once he understood what a natural edge was, as he couldn't figure it out over the phone or even with a texted picture of his piece.



 

And I have to say, yesterday's customers where not too happy. The wanted something that I didn't have. But I told them they could most likely get it from A&P sawmill in NH. And to call Pete Drouin and ask him first before they drove up there to see him.
They said they were going to try some more local places to see if they could find what they wanted.
They wanted some dry white pine 2x10x12s that were still white as fresh sawn. I told them that most likely they could find dry wood but it difficult to say if it is still white as fresh sawn wood.

Jim,

   My white pine tends to turn a little yellow or reddish when it dries. I never learned the trick of keeping it white during the drying process. If you learn how to do that let me know how.
