Sometimes there's more to owning a mill than just sawing wood.  Great job, great ending.

Take steps to save steps.

If it won’t roll, its not a log; it’s still a tree.  Sawmills cut logs, trees.

Kiln drying wood: When the cookies are burned, they’re burned, and you can’t fix them.  So don’t burn the cookies.

Sawing is fun for the first couple hundred boards.

Good job. He will be talking about that for a long while. This is where that word of mouth advertising comes from. ;)

 You got that right, he will talk about this day for a long time and to a lot of ears.  :)  The way you treated this customer is how I see things myself, I often let young ones have a go at a board.  Those  kids grin from ear to ear.  :D  They put the board aside and dream up all kinds of project for it.
  You did a fine job out of what a lot  would of turned away with the back side of there hand, you never know,  you may have  found a dozen new customers just like him, but next time, they may have real long logs  to saw.  :P :P :P
