Maybe Mr. Magic Man could move his marvelous mechanical mobile mill from Mississippi to Michigan to make a major movie?  ???

I do believe there is a tractor that was centered around a relocation discussion but colder weather put off the adventure.

I did one of those today and will have another to do tomorrow on a 26" SYP log. 

My sawing went very well but I only sawed 6 hours due to some customer distractions.


 
2080 bf of framing lumber plus the slabs.


 
There were 20 logs and we will saw these last 5 in the morning.  I don't know what that bad dude on the left is gonna make.  Knotty logs make low quality knotty lumber.  The center log will make mostly 1 or 2 live edge slabs for kitchen, etc. counter tops.

I use them for stickers and/or 4x4 four foot cribbing for my welding shop.  So they are cut 4 foot, which allows artistic license around the knots.

I finished the 20 log job plus a couple of ERC mantels, etc. for another customer today.


 
4098 bf of 2X4's plus a few single and two live edge slabs for the customer's wife & daughter.  All of this is for the customer's new 4K+ square foot home.  The above was sawn in 7 hours.

I have more framing lumber scheduled for next week for another repeat customer.

If this is asking about the one sloped face beam, it's for support of a shallow sloped roof over a deck. I believe it has 2" X 4" framing and needs additional support centrally across to support snow loads.

Finished milling the osage orange finally (been super swamped and hadn't had time). Question, is osage orange a desirable wood for tables and whatnot? I have no idea how to price slabs like these. They are all 2.5 inches thick, 10 ft long, and range from 2 ft wide to 3 ft wide. I'm really unsure about the x shaped one(s) at the end



 

 

 

 

 

 


So these two slabs actually nest into one another, this is where the two trees were growing/twisted together. I imagine someone could make a very cool table out of this maybe....I'll know more once it dries and I know whether it splits and cracks and stuff, though I think osage is pretty stable from what I've read. I'd have NO IDEA what to even think something like this would be worth to someone wanting to build a table out of though. Suggestions anyone? (I'm not even sure I'm allowed to post questions like this, so if not, I apologize and I understand if the post gets removed).

Those are all really unique pieces of wood. Id think starting at $10 bd/ft maybe more for the super neat one!
