It's been a long time
« on: April 07, 2020, 10:34:19 AM »
 

 

 

 So a buddy of mine may have caused the coronavirus. Ya see it has been quite a while since I milled any lumber because the wife "believes" I have to much already. Since I live in a subdivision in metro Atlanta I don't really have any place for it. But this buddy comes up to the house with 8 beautiful hickory logs that had just been cut and asks if we can mill them. I tell the wife that they will be processed over the next few weeks.

See I can't start that day since I threw my back out, but soon. And then all hell breaks loose with CV. So now I get stuck chainsaw milling it all. The good sides of the equation we have some nice wood AND not working freed up enough time that I could knock a log or two out each day. Here's some pics of things after stacking and stickering...all ends are now painted:

Nice lumber, scogar.  Looks like some hard work with a chainsaw mill.
