Haven't Had This Happen In a While
« on: November 23, 2013, 05:47:43 PM »
Guys shows up today with his walnut logs.  Says he wants me to cut 70 bf at 8/4 and 50 bf at 5/4.  I look at the logs, scratch my head and then get out my Logrite  scaling stick and measure the logs. 

Total for all three logs is 52bf.   :D

That should have caused you to scratch your head a little more!  :o

Kind of like sawing 12" boards out of an 8" log!  :P

Kinda like the little lady that wanted me to saw 2X12's for shelving.  Not one of her 6 logs in her pickup bed was over 8" and the tailgate was closed when she drove up.   ;D

     I got one of those recently.  A guy said he wanted me to saw out wood for 900' of fence and a pole barn with stalls for 4 horses.  I got there to take a look at his pile of logs and he showed me a decent size pine, still standing.  "What do you think?"  He said he could use a second one if it was really necessary.
     I gave him a bf/ log chart to get an idea of how much is in his tree, and suggested he get together with the contractor going to build those things and figure out how much wood he'd need.  I also explained I can't mill a standing tree. ::)

thank God!  these issues only come up once in two or three blue moons!  head scratching in order, not on how to do it, but how to explain it to the one(s) that just don't know,   david
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,
