Is that a counter for a store, Jim?  Hope he dried them first!
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!

Today's happy customer came over to pick up a 3 1/2"x16"x87" piece of red oak that he's going to use as a mantle.

Thanks Dan:

Today's second happy customer is a repeat customer. I cut a timber frame shed for him.
He had a large maple tree cut down behind the shed, as it dropped a branch on the shed and made him mad.
The log was 8' long and around 32" at the butt.
I trimmed off two opposite sides down to 23" or so because he wanted some "wide as possible" 5/4, 6/4 and 8/4.

Here is me working on it before we hit the nails:



 

Almost made it to the center when we hit one small nail.
Found a bunch more and removed them.
Flipped it over and found one more with the second blade.

Here is the load on his truck:


 

Some of those were clear.
Got 255 bdft out of that log.

Yesterday, I sawed up the biggest log in my pile for several customers.
One showed up to pick up his wide bar tops:



 
And he even got a red flag.

2x26x8' and one piece 10'.

It'll take a nice straight log to get a 26" slab through a standard WoodMizer.
Nice work Jim.

It is a "wife is always right"  kinda thing.  Pinterest etsy who knows.  they may get a picture frame tv, and can watch a fire at the holiday time.  certainly rustic.  yes dear.

My "customer" is my niece and her husband.  I help them frame up this "shed" (8x12) where the was a rotted 8x8 one.  I cut, planed and T&G the cedar for the back wall, ceiling and front wall.  I was down there dropping my son off at a Scout camp last weekend and asked to stay over.  We finished out front wall (around the window and door) and all the trim (windows, corners, ceiling & baseboard) on Saturday afternoon.  Sunday morning I took these pictures.

 Sunday morning I decided the space to the right of the door (drywall) had to go.  So we ripped that out and, using my brad nailer, added T&G there with some corner moulding.  Still need to make up trim boards for the door.  My nephew had a bad bicycle accident (compression fracture of L1 along with lots of road rash) and hasn't been able to work on this much in the last couple of months.  Turns out Saturday was his birthday so I "gave" him this present of completion.  This is his home office during C19.

got this done for my wife.  she bought the fabric pic in Branson.  came home with it and the wrong size old window to mount it.  had to make a foe 6 light window frame.  



 

light behind it was to help me strech it so no plain fabric was showing.

here is a nurse and her husband and daughter.  they brought a pine log to mill, to make a rustic live edge table for there sons fiancÚ, getting married next year.  the daughter just turned 16 so she got a custom charcuterie board, and a wand sign from harry potter.  and endless Dad/Pediatrician jokes and ribbing from me.  good family.



 

and Libby liked them too.  they took the whole log so the future daughter in law could pick the piece.  Her brother is a woodworker and will add metal legs.

I was a little reluctant to post this but last night around 9:30 I got a text and pictures from a customer/friend who picked up some wood from us Sunday afternoon.

We sawed this Thanksgiving morning, put it in the kiln and ran it until Sunday.  Fortunately we had good weather for drying.  We pulled the wood out of the kiln on Sunday and it was below 10% MC.  His wife loved the blue stain and evidently the wane as seen on some of the boards.  We cut extra and they had plenty to do the job with some left over for extra projects.  The wanescoating was sawn to 5/8" thick and random widths.  We sawed mostly clear wood but also cut up a short, knotty log when he told us the more rustic the better.
