$1.14 Per-Board-Foot Sawing Charge
« on: May 15, 2011, 12:21:14 PM »
Just completed my highest per-board-foot sawing job ever.  :) :) :)   Guy drove 45 miles out to my place with a 18" diameter 14" long ( :D) walnut log.   He wanted it cut into 1 1/2" cookies.   It took me 14 minutes start to finish including setting up the platform to hold the log.  I got 7 cookies out of it for him and charged him $25.  ;D ;D ;D

He was happy and I was happy.

That's almost as good a money as the cookie cooker, Famous Amos, makes.
