I drove 35 miles to saw these 2 White Oak logs. An 8' flattened 2 sides and an 11' on the end. The customer evidently did not understand they needed to be lined up side to side vs end to end. ::) Oh well, it was a minimum rate job anyway. I sawed several of the chainsawed slabs and got some short 8/4 and 5/4 boards for the customer. Then I sawed some crotch cookies and even squared up a firewood chunk for a stool. I even sawed a couple of firewood pieces into 6/4 square stock for future bench legs. I think the customer will bring them over and I'll make him a couple of LE benches. Sort of like playing with the mill but getting paid to do it. All that playing at home paid off with this kind of job. Also the MagicHook got a good workout rolling that big flat log. Then I spun the tongue of the mill a little and dragged the 11' log down till we could load and saw it. Lots of 12" wide 4/4 boards. 2.5 hours on the mill. 1.9 engine hours about 5 hours on site and a very happy customer.

(Image hidden from quote, click to view.)
Boards up to 16" wide, cookies, cut-off, etc in his truck to be taken a few hundred feet for stacking.
(Image hidden from quote, click to view.)
Mostly 12" wide 4/4 WO boards from the 11' log.

  I like sawing jobs like this. I hit one nail and it was parallel to the log. 1/8" higher or lower and I'd have missed it. The customer had no complaints paying for the blade. How lucky can you get! It is fun when you have a good customer who appreciates the work and results.  

  While I'm loaded up I have another long days work scheduled for the morning.
Howard,  nice work.  I think you are getting as busy as M.M.
Be good,
Rich

I sawed up the ugly old maple stump, after splitting it in half with the 880, a 5 foot bar, and skip chain.  I made the thin coaster stock 18 inches wide and 24 inches long, 1/4 inch thick.  i had left some quarters laying and today I sawed them into 1 inch thick really ugly boards to cut to sticker length and then rip 3/4 on the table saw for future stickers.  had not run the saw for a while, was good to hear it talk to me when I push quickly through the left over stuff.  warm but got a fire going in the @Brad_bb inspired turbo burn barrel

A long hard but productive day. We sawed everything in the picture and even 4 quarters off the big RO in the background. I actually had 3 customers involved. First was 182 bf of poplar (2 logs) sawed into 2X4 & 2X6's), next was about 15 RO/WO 8' & 10' logs. A few 2X4s and mostly 4/4. 1540 bf for him. Then 3 large lightning struck poplar logs - 2-5' long and one 8'. Sawed them into 1/2 LE 8/4. Lots of season and other cracking with big end splits before I ever sawed them but the customer expected the damage and was very happy with the results. 530 bf for him. 8.3 engine hours on the mill and even had to stop and refill the gas tank once. I had the MMs luck on helpers for a change with a pretty, hard working young lady in a sleeveless tank top and sports bra stacking all day. She worked hard and asked lots of good questions and was happy to learn about the mill and sawing. I deserve a little good luck once in a while.

8' dead stacked on the forks. Note cracks.
 8' dead stacked poplar on the forks. Note the splits. These were 23" wide, I even had to debark one edge to get the blade to pass. First time I have succeeded in cheating the log and sawing 26-28 inch diameter. It was a good day.

 5' 8/4 one side LE poplar. Flat stacked while the owner took the other load home on his tractor.


 4/4 Oak boards. There is a stack of 2X4 behind this stack I Forgot to photograph. It was right at dark and I was rushing. Also did not get a picture of the poplar 2X4's and 2X6's as the customer loaded them on his trailer as cut, paid and left before I thought about a picture.

4/oak boards. Grainy picture of my lady off-bearer, Heidi, in the background. Total 2252 bf and 12 hours from start to finish.

at least MMs off bearer has a matching shirt and shoes and safety PPE in gloves and safety glasses.  for all we know, the neighbor lady was just walking by.  Will let it slide this time, but incidents like this are what the wood shed is for.   :) :) :)

Doc,

   Why don't you just go teach the boy scouts to start a fire by rubbing 2 sticks together instead of stirring up hate, discontent and ill-will! :D We all know you are just jealous of MM and me getting good help.

   I will say my helper did not look as neat as MMs at the end of the day. She was covered in sawdust and her hair had started to scatter and such after carrying 12"-16" wide RO boards all day. She was a tough worker.

Good help is hard to find, very hard.
Pretty help is all but impossible.

Some folks have asked me if I am  fast sawyer or if I am a slow sawyer. My answer is always the same "Well I am not slow, and I am surely not fast. I am kind of in the middle, I am what you might call a half-fast sawyer. :)

I bet next time Howard gets pretty help he will get a better photo before he eve gets started. :D ;D
