Desparate to mill logs

There's always more than one way to skin a cat  or saw a log.

I'm just as impressed with the fact that the bandsaw was homemade also. Very cool.

Very ingenious, but while watching the video, I am reminded how much I like my hydraulic band mill.

Who else grinned and almost laughed watching him hammer in fast forward?  :D
That being said, this guy was most desperate to mill that log.  Most of us probably know this feeling.  Of course, the first time I got something useful out of a log using a chainsaw mill I was ecstatic.  Then I had to build a bandmill and everything changed.
