New Milling Superhero!!!!!!!!(well....sort of)
« on: June 30, 2012, 08:22:24 PM »
Hello Everyone,

I am cutting some very nice loblolly pines for my new mancave project,...er..workshop expansion.
I started cutting a large (for me) log about 25 inches diameter.  I was really tired of the heat,
hauling logs, stacking, stickering ect. I went to turn the cant for the final squaring cut and I'd
about had it. I was too wore out.  I really needed someone to offer some assistance, a helping hand.

 

 


I called out for some HELP...PLEASE!!!

Then it happened. I heard a loud whooshing sound overhead.
Look, up in the sky.  It's a bird....no....it's a plane....it's....it's.....

It's LUMBERDOG!!!!!!!!

 

 

That's right folks.  Lumberdog, strange visitor from an alien planet.
Posing as Shadow, mild-mannered pooch belonging to my daughter,
Lumberdog can run off critters and varmints from the largest of slabpiles,
stack and sticker heavy boards and turn cants with a single paw.

Before I could bat an eye he was off to chase a squirrel away. So I went on with my
sawing.  Loaded 19 2x4s, 1 2x6, 1 1x10, and 3 1x6 on the tractor.
 

 

Lumberdog came running to the drying barn to help stack and sticker. So I went to get some water, when I got back all I see is
 

 

Well, I reckon Lumberdog will at least keep the critters and varmints run off from the slabpile.


Maybe???????

Thanks for the laugh, Greg.  I actually "laughed out loud" at that one.  You tell a good story.  Nice spot for milling you've got there.

How big a log do you think he'd 'fetch' ???

  I had a border collie years ago that loved to play fetch.  I finally tried throwing a 6 foot 2 x 4.  Since it laid flat, it was hard for him to pick up but no problem for him to carry.

  He laid it aside and brought a "stick" over to throw next.  I think it was a piece of firewood about 5 inch diameter by 2 foot.  He'd pick those up on a full out run and barely break stride.

Nice picture of your dog on the cant. My wife's dog loves to play in the sawdust. Kinda off a long hair dog and she will come back with sawdust on her face and my wife knows the dog has been with PaPa.
