Powderpost
« on: November 27, 2022, 06:08:19 PM »
I was cleaning up in the shop over the weekend, trying to use or lose some of the mountain of "too good to throw" wood in the way.

My sawhorses are about worn out, I'll leave them on this job so I was making a new batch of a half dozen. As I was collecting scrap 2x4 this poplar made it to my saw, and then to the woodstove.

This stick had bumped around the mill for several years so poor storage, not really dry... borate or burn it, tulip poplar is just too tasty.

I've heard people say ppb's are not a structural problem, I beg to differ, these guys have been working on this stick less than 5 years I think  :).

I can see Danny grinning and shaking his head in agreement.
Two LT70s, Nyle L200 kiln, 4 head planer, 30" double surface planer, Lucas dedicated slabber, Slabmizer, and enough rolling stock and chainsaws to keep it all running.

That's pretty cool, notice how they stay away form the the edges of the board, they have a "margin" they don't seem to violate. 
YellowHammerisms:

Take steps to save steps.

If it wont roll, its not a log; its still a tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not trees.

Kiln drying wood: When the cookies are burned, theyre burned, and you cant fix them.  So dont burn the cookies.

Sawing is fun for the first couple hundred boards.
