I know a fellow who has a sawmill like that. But he doesn't stand there. He sits on a bar stool.
Something to think about.

 Jim,
Is his bar stool in the bar, or does he keep one at his control station on his sawmill ;D ;D ;D? Either way it's probably easier on the knees.

He carries it with him to the job sites, as he is over 70 years old and doesn't carry any lumber any more. He makes the customers do it. He just sits and saws.

Good luck Bruno. You will love the independence of running you're own business. There's a lot involved that people don't see or understand but I would not have it any other way.
Best of luck

Thanks Pa
I have worked for myself since 1984
But now it will be all at my own house.
That's the best part  :)
