Jim, at first I though that was a 5 gallon bucket!  :o Then I saw the writing.  They just got Dickey's out here.  I got some free sandwich coupons from the blood bank and gave them a shot - good eats!

I brought in 9 timbers, it was suppose to be (5) 12', (3) 14' and (1) 16' But I ended up getting two 16' ones as he didn't have a 12' one I needed.

So anyway, I finally finished pulling all the nails I could find. Some timbers had some I couldn't find and I gave up trying to find them.

I have sawn up 8 of the nine and I hit nails with three blades so far. One was a big cut nail and the others were small wire nails.

Here is my tools used for this job:

 

 

I have found about the best tool for pulling these wire nails was the "California bar"

If you told me that I'd fill that cup with nails, I wouldn't have believed you.

Here is the first timber on the mill:

 

 

I hope they will be happy with these. I think they look great.

They're suppose to stain them a shade of gray to make them look old.

Probably a lot of what nobody else wants.
I get a lot of water oak, sycamore, hackberry, elm, honey locust, and even blackjack oak to make cants and pallet stringers out of, and of course the normal RO, Post Oak and Hickory.

Tough stuff.

Jim, pulling all that iron really adds to the job! ;D

Reminds me of when I was a kid........only thing was I had to straighten the nails for reuse. Sheeesh! :D

I'm planning on sawing enough SYP to build a solar kiln in the spring. Hopefully I can talk a local gas fired kiln into cooking my lumber so it will be ready. I really need to get my log deck installed first though. I finally got my mind in order so it shouldn't take long :)

Since "Next Year" is "This Year", I modified the Thread Title and we can share what we are sawing today or this week or whenever.   8)

I plan to go back to the Cabin next week and postpone any sawing until the following week.

I am involved in sawing wood for the city of Toronto, we have 3 yards, meaning storage yards. We are converting to lumber, cants, slabs and firewood. We fill 20 yard bins with scabs, and small logs for firewood. Cants are going to a resaw for pallet wood and such. The ash on the mill I turned into live edge, book matched and we sold it for $500. We hope to start sorting the logs for grade and type. Right now we are in a race to salvage what we can, as the tub grinder is close to coming and grinding what we can not saw. It is an interesting experiment as we try to prove the city can make more money sawing than grinding.

Today I have been sawing some red oak for planks and trailer decking.

The planks are going to be 1 7/8" x 10" x 10' 6" for a company that installs concrete burial vaults at cemeteries. These planks are what is under the carpet that looks like green grass beside the burial spot. The Pall bearers walk out on these to set down the casket. I've been sawing these for this company for 20 years. They use them up and/or they split or something and they need more. Sometimes twice a year, sometimes more.

On the way to making these planks I'm cutting 1 1/2" planks for the trailer decking job I've got.
It's great when you can cut for two orders at the same time.
