Yesterday's happy customer came by to pick up two 2x8x16' red oak planks for his company's truck side boards.
They have been done a while and were very heavy.



 

He got a new red flag as well.

two are 4x12x36" and two are 4x8x24".

I`m not sure who is happier, the customer who got his shed that I milled from pine dropped in place and stood up, floor is ash, or me because the components have been built and stacked on my trailer for a month waiting for him to get the site ready, shed pic is before trim, battens and hanging the sliding doors

Saturday's second happy customer came over to pick up his first load of timbers for his timber frame barn he's building. He got only 8 timbers out of the 87 I have left to do for him. But it was happy with them.



 

And he got a new red flag as well.

Looks like business is good Jim,
I like that you give out red flags, I'm sure 99% wouldn't even know they needed one.

  I blew it today and forgot to get a picture of my customer picking up the last of his 738 bf of walnut. We cut the butt log (453 bf) Tuesday after struggling to get the big logs off his trailer. I actually had to move the mill to the log as I did not have anything big enough to move the log once it was on the ground. He loved seeing the magic hook roll the log on to the arms and watching the mill lift and turn as we whittled it down to fit between the blade guides. All that was 6/4 lumber and most of the boards were 22-23 inches wide. Even the edged boards were over 12" wide. The pith boards split in two and I was going to edge into about 6-8 inch boards and he stopped me and said he'd make a river table. He was going to take 2 of the wide boards and make a big farm table. I sawed the rest yesterday mostly into 6/4 with a few 4X4's for big legs. Crotch wood, cookies, etc. He loved it and was grinning from ear to ear as we loaded it to go back to Texas. He must have liked it as he left a tip of nearly $70.

Good luck. One lesson I learned/was reminded of was when gunbarrelling those big logs just take small bites and don't get greedy. It is faster to take small bites and rotate several times than get half way down and have to stop and Bibby off some excess with a chainsaw so your blade will pass all the way to the end.
