I now know how cedar man feels :)
« on: September 03, 2013, 08:08:46 PM »
Well last week and today has been pretty busy. I was sitting around tuning up the ole mill and phone rings. Hello yes i have some cedars for you to cut up could you come look at them. I said sure on the way the whole time i am thinking hmmmm cedars lots of nails probably maybe some fence wire who knows   smiley_crying smiley_crying smiley_crying. well when i showed up this is what i found.

i was like oooooooo nice  ;D




and even had a helper there this is neat

 

Then we talked price and then got to work  3601bd ft later we had this note he had already taken a 16 ft trailer load



 



and the very best part is i never once hit any metal in the logs. My first time ever sawing that much cedar and not hitting one nail or fence wire awesome days  8)
