Lawn Dawg, did you empty those barrels?  ;D

Very nice looking creations. Is the chair painted black to simulate charring?

Yeah, I emptied them one sitting... :D
Those are authentic whiskey barrel staves I made those chairs out of, no paint

What did you do to keep the charring from making a mess?

I like your taste in bourbon!

I sanded them down outside, but in the end, they get sprayed with about 4 coats of poly. That seals the mess in!

I have done a brew or two,  ;D , in the past...Thanks for the compliments!

That's a good question and it made me pause and think about all the stages of the cycle.

We log by hand during the winter . There are days when it is -25 C with deep snow and high wind. For some reason I still love it. There are days when it's 0 C and mild . Your working and your wet because it's mild . The snow is sticking to everything . For some reason I still love it.

We move our logs by rafting them together in the spring and towing them home with th e boat. Love that part to . 

Sawing with the bandmill . Been doing that for 26 years now . Still love it.

Planing the lumber four sides. Just got this option going in the last two years. Really love the look and feel of the fresh dressed lumber. 

Have a woodworking shop where I piddle around making things that interest me. Love that to .

Time spent on the FF . Time well spent.

I guess the short answer to the question is that's there's nothing about the whole logging, towing, sawing ,planing ,woodworking that I don't love.

Only hope I can be still doing it till the day I die.

I like both but am doing less and less of them.
Since my boat accident in September I have sawed about 1000 bf of hemlock and in the shop made about 400 bf of WP shiplap.
No nice woodworking projects at all
leg still bothers some.

Hello all;  
I'm new here, but have been lurking for years. To echo earlier points, they're both equally (though differently) satisfying if you can high grade the season and working conditions you do them in.
My day job is building (and plenty of rebuilding of) wooden boats.  I also harvest and mill Tamarack (Hackmatack knees).  Here is a little 14' lapstrake dory I built this summer for a customer using Tamarack, White Cedar, Ash, White Oak, and White Pine I cut and/or milled.
The idea of valuing adding to raw materials and the practice of it doesn't always reconcile (believe me!), but it's great when it does work out.  
Anyways, a belated thanks to the folks around here.  I've sure gleaned a ton of good insights in my time here as a visitor. 
Josh

I have been on both sides and sometime in between, but in my today's world my satisfaction is opening a log and being the first person to ever see what is inside.
I too like the part about opening up a log and being the first person to ever see what's inside. 
I like to make stuff too with the wood that i mill. I've made some cedar benches and live edge cedar coat racks with logs that i've milled. It gives me a lot of satisfaction to look at the finished product and know that i did it all.

I like both. I made nine of these for Christmas presents for my nieces and nephews. Pine, Cherry and Maple. All cut down,milled and turned into something nice. I like the idea of going from the tree on my land to something useful.
