I sell them cheap for firewood. 
I sell them bundled just as they are 
And precut by the pick up load.
My slab cutting rack and a 3' bar make short work of it.

I'm finally getting some logs in now. It's been so wet here I have not been able to get logs in for a couple months. My stash was getting really low. 
Now I'm getting hammered. I had three loggers contact me this week. 



I'll be getting a triaxle load in tomorrow.

Nice rack! I need to build myself something like that. I have been sliding them off my mill into a pile and using the grappler on my bobcat to pile them into a mountain of mess. Really need to do something about that.

Sawed a bunch of live edge slabs the other day. I've been having more and more requests for them. 
Anyone ever saw apple?
This was my first time. Not sure how they will dry. It was either slabs or firewood.
And I didn't feel like splitting firewood :D

I can't believe I did this :(


 
Yup that's my firewood cutting rack. I was unloading a log truck today and had customers waiting. I don't even remember backing into it. I never felt it in that big machine. Guess I'll be building another one.

I got a good bit of sawing done last week.
It was hot and humid but it wasn't raining so I took advantage of it. I picked some of the smaller logs out for 1x10's

 
It's a good day when you get 1x12x14 out of the flitch pile 8)

When that shed was built it was for a lt30.
And it was only going to be a hobby. I was only going to have to shovel sawdust once a year. Well things changed now I saw full time. I don't wanna know how many tons of sawdust Ive shoveled.

Ever have one of those days?
Seems I couldn't get nothen accomplished today.
I had an order for some 2x8x18
And some 1x10x10


 
The 18 foot log went crazy on me and I had to dig another out. 

And 2 of the 10 foot logs were full of shake. 

But hay....just another day in Paradise :)
It hasn't rained here for 3 days 8)

If you have lumber going sideways, You are cutting down on the wrong face .

Thanks Peter. I'm aware. There was a big ugly knot that I didn't want in the face of every board. I knew it was going to go sideways on me but I didn't think it would go that much. I left the can't an inch wide to edge out the crook. But that wasn't enough.
He is going to use them as runners on a hay wagon so a little crook wouldn't be an issue. But 4" :o I don't think he would be happy with that. I know I wouldn't.
