Looks good! 😅.
So you are of the ‘hump-first’ school as opposed to the ‘horns-first’?

There are some that love the live edge oval slabs that come off the hump of a crooked log.  I kinda like them myself.

With framing lumber your final saw through needs to be from either the hump or horn face.  That way your lumber will tend to bow rather than crook.

Lk067, nice mill!  I just set mine up this past weekend.

When building it, I found that the directions called for using the supplied 6 and a half inch bolts to mount the axle and forward frame stiffeners.  They were way too long.  I wound up going to Lowes and buying 4 and a half bolts.  Did you have this issue as well?

I like to saw the hump off first.  It gives me a little leeway.  I'm mostly sawing boxed heart timbers and get a little side lumber during the process.  Once I saw the hump off I can really see where I stand, and where the log stands, I can see if it is even possible to make a boxed heart timber out of the log at that point.  I look at the hump as a crown, I know it will crown that way eventually during the drying process.  So, if I am making 6x8s for example, I will make the 8" cut with the hump up, then cut the sides down to 6.  
     I know this really isn't a hump up, horns up thread, but this seems to have come up.  I don't know if I'm doing it right by the way, it's just the way that I've been doing it and approaching the situation.

Notice in my Reply #9, I said:

I was addressing only one instance.  Your cut list will always determine your opening face and sawing pattern.
