Just introducing myself as new to FF
« on: May 09, 2005, 04:30:10 AM »
This is just me introducing myself to this great site.  I figured I had sat in the background long enough that I should  come out and hopefully get some questions answered.

a little about myself is that I am in my third year of law school hoping to graduate in may of 2006 an realized I love the outside too much to be cooped up in an office all day.  so as my name states I have some newer goals right now.  One is to be a lawyer for the money to pay student debts the other is to be a sawyer be outside and do something I think I will love.

I do not have any equipment as of yet just a lot of desire and a year of planning before I can even try and move toward a part time sawing operation.

thank you to all who have posted information on this site as it is a phenominal database and it has be a real Godsend in educating me.
Love the outdoors, chainsaws, my 300 win mag, my wife and my son but not exactly in that order.

Thanks for the welcomes so far.
I hope sometime soon to start rounding out the knowledge I think I will need to start a part time sawmilling business by asking questions so beware  :D

and yes i do agree that it is an odd combination of skills but as the saying goes you can take the boy out of the country but you can't take the country out of the boy.

thanks again

I've met a couple of sawmillers in the AA area.  I'm in Lansing.  Woodmizer said that they've sold about 100 mills within a 100 mile radius of me and i believe it!  ITs amazing.  Course, most of those sit in rich guys barns, but there is a few of us.  If you want to see a small operation you can come on up.  I may be selling my new woodmizer LT-40 when i finish my timber frame home and concentrating on a big kiln operation so let me know if you might want one of those!

   Was at a Christmas Party throwed by the hospital where my wife is a PT.  She intoduced me to some Doctors and told them I was a sawyer.  One says "That's great!"  "Where did you go to law school?"   ::)   I had to explain that I was a Sawyer not a Lawyer and what it was I really did.  He then ask "Where you go to school to learn that?"  I tell him the University of HK and that I now work with a group who help teach it on the internet.  Doc thought I was interesting.  ??? ???

   Welcome lawyer-sawyer from the ARKANSAWYER and like Tom said you may want to specialize in timber and lumber litagations as we could use some special help some times.

Welcome aboard!  I am not too far away so if you would like to stop by sometime feel free.  I am in Indiana about 2 miles from Ohio and about 7 from Michigan and about 2 hours from you.

Lots of good info here.

Welcome Lawyer-Sawyer.  It took me 8 years to get through school (college and grad school) and I walked away with a masters in accounting only to learn that I really didn't like paperwork and being cooped up in an office. (slow learner  :P) Nothing like being outdoors. There are a bunch of great guys here and lots of knowledge and best of all, they are all willing to share it freely.

Hola,

You know, when I was in high school my dream job was to be a forest ranger. Be in the outdoors, etc. However, I took a turn down the darkside - software development. Now I am an owner of a reforestation project in Costa Rica.

The funny thing is I started the project here and it was about a year later I remember that being involved in forest was my dream job. Hey, it had been nearly 30 years!

Just as much fun as I thought it would be.... But I need to go fishing more. Already warned everyone that I am going to be missing in action more often.

So, how did I end up here anyway?

thank you again for the warm welcome.  after this week when my last final for this year is over I will hopefully be able to ask some questions about how to go about starting a business that is profitable enough to sustain itself on a part time time schedule so that once my student loans are paid off I could be doing this full time.

it never ceases to amaze me the knowledge you can gain from this site just reading through posts and personal experieinces.  this is a great site with great members and hope it stays around a long time

Howdy L_S,

Welcome to the greatest little site in the world. Glad to have you here.



must admit I though at first you was gonna set up a mill to cut lawyers into 4/4 slices.

No doubt there would be pretty good money in doin' this. Problem would be to avaid gettin' caught.  ;D

Now that's FUNNY!   :D  Without a doubt, Arky, you're a tenured perfessor at Forestry Forum University!   ;)

Welcome, Lawyer-Sawyer.  I'm in Michigan too.  My mill's in Eaton Rapids, not too far from Ann Arbor, but it still needs a little TLC before she's making sawdust again.  When I have it up and running, I'll let you know, though I'm still a freshman at FFU myself. 

Hmm...what's the mascot for the FFU?  I'd say we're the Lumberjacks, or the Timbermen, or the Woodsmen...

Oh wait...we already have a mascot, don't we?  It's the Furby!   :D
