Here's a sneak peek of what I'm going to be sawing next.  

A farmer near me called and said he had a bunch of cedar on his hedgerows and I could have it if I wanted to cut it down. (Note the barbed wire below the cut.) All of them have wire, but I'll just cut them about 4 1/2 feet high. There's probably 150 of them at least 16" or bigger.
I gotta come to NC and buy some logs for sure.
Ya got me drooling again.

My neighbor had a half dozen dead red oaks that I offered to remove for him.  It made very nice 5/4 boards for horse stalls.

I had an interesting job today.  A couple of weeks ago a customer wanted me to come and look and I did:


 
Three blocks of whatever that he wanted me to clean up and then split the shorter one.


 
And 6 Pecan limbs that he wanted posts, plus 1" and 2" two live edge slabs.  They were gonna be heavy so I would need help. 


 
So Marty and Ben became tailgunners today.


 
Some of the hardware that was in the cants.


 
But they still got cleaned up, much to the customer's satisfaction.


 
He was also pleased with the Pecan.  Hourly rate plus labor equaled a very nice pay day for all.  :)

I totally agree and no way would I have ever sawn that Pecan mess for myself but I have sawn many times for this guy.  He loves to experiment and his $$ are good.  ;D

The old timber chunks came from somewhere in the NE, maybe Massachusetts??  The largest one squared 12X12, the second largest squared 12X14, and the one seen on the sawmill made two 3X12's.  Two were WRC and one was SYP, probably Longleaf.

No, we were rain/stormed out this week and sadly this next week doesn't look any better.  I am now shooting for the week of March 29th or the next week of April 5th.

PatD has her aortic heart valve replacement scheduled for the next week (15th) so if we can't get it done before that we will have to skip a few weeks.

the board he was attaching to was warped.  it was "straw board'  that used to be manufactured here from wheat straw.  so he went and spent 35 bucks on a sheet of osb 7/16ths.  Poor Dallas has succumbed to ERCC.  eastern redcedar crazy! :) no pics of the final 4 feet yet, out of respect for his family!   :D :D :D



 

so the sides of the steps are closed in,  the area behind the shelf on the left, is re-sheeted, and getting covered  he will make another shelf in the loft.  He is talking crazy about replacing the treads with ERC.  8) 8) 8)

   My wife's cousin and her husband came for an overnight visit yesterday afternoon. I took him and showed him my setup, sawed one small poplar log into 4/4 stock then loaded up the mill and we took it to my next customer's house 11 miles away and set it up. I returned this morning to this load of logs.


Mostly WO, maybe a couple of RO and one tiny hemlock so far. I see a cherry coming up on the next visit. We sawed about half till we wore out my 77 y/o helper. He is about the size of the MM so I ended up helping him toss the slabs on the pile but he stacked the lumber pretty much alone. We had about 747 bf when we broke for the day.


 
We will resume Monday after my doctor's appointment. I'll stop by on my return and we will finish this pile.


It was a pleasant morning and we made some real pretty boards.

Lynn,

   First you horde all the LogRite cant hooks now you are hogging up all the young, strong help. Its a sad state of affairs that the only off bearer help we can get around here is 77 y/o. He put in a good day and I am not putting him down at all. You'd just think there would be a few strapping teenage boys wanting the work.

Yeah, you would, but no.... What I wouldn't give for a teenager (male or female) with grits that could help me out after school or on weekends and maybe learn something useful. Ain't happenin' these days. Liability, what if, etc. etc.
 I was helping a neighbor do firewood and they had a nephew there, about 12YO, and I gave him a hookeroon and showed him how to use it and gave him a safety talk. He was having a blast and helping out dragging rounds up to the splitter with great effect as he figured it out...until grandma saw and came running out and said we had to take the 'dangerous tool away from him before he got hurt". Kids today are doomed.
