Right on WDH.  We don't need any phoney Bologna "reality show".  Ax men is bad enough, and totally unwatchable.
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

It could end up being more profitable than the lumber bidness. Eventually lead to show on Discovery. YH might be more popular than Parker  Schnavel.
Heck, I'm much more better looking than Parker, and a little nicer, too.  :D :D  So if I did the show, it might be a big hit, I'd have lots of money, I'd be famous and then I'd never have time to run the sawmill or have any fun. :D :D :D 

Nah, I like it the way it is.  Making sawdust and selling wood. 

Actually, I was on the Discovery channel once for one of my projects, a few years ago, before I retired from my other job, and all I got was a free pizza. :D :D :D

Today's happy customer:



 

Is getting ready to hold up this piece:



 

so his helper can take a picture of it.

They brought in 4 logs from one pine tree from his yard and got 1450 bdft of lumber from them.

Some of it turned because they took so long to get here and pick it up:



 

I told them that is called California Blue Denim pine and it is worth more now.
They are going to use the lumber to make row boats for some inner city kids to use to row around Boston Harbor.

Yesterday, as they were loading up the lumber the customer asked me how long had I been milling here in my yard. I told him 25 years.
He then asked me how old the sawmill was.
I waited a bit to see if he could figure it out.
He couldn't, so I told him 25 years.

Maybe he thought you bought it used or was newer than your start? ::)

It's a 1994 model?  I thought it was newer than that.  Do you know how many hours are on it?  Do you have an hour meter?

25 years on a mill.  Pretty cool.   8)
Do you still have one of the original bands?  Id hang that on the wall for sure, as a showpiece.

He was too bashful to stand by the truck but he brought in a mixed load of various sized hemlock and red oak logs to "see what we could get" out of them... What we got was a mixed load of various sized hemlock and red oak lumber.....I charged by the hour and was happy I wasnt the guy who had to sort and stack the load!!!
