Love to see happy customers. I had one yesterday and today. I cut some 2.5" thick cottonwood sideboards for a guy's dump truck last year. He just had to have them right away. Never came back for them. I put them on Facebook marketplace and a guy scooped up two of them for making workbench tops.

A few days ago cleaning up my log yard I grabbed a birch out of a group of logs that had been around for a couple of years. They were some of those I was going to get to but kept putting it off. After awhile I decided to let them go a while and see if they would spalt. I cut five nice spalted birch, two inch, live edge slabs and a gentleman just left with two of them. He was thrilled to get them. I've got three more logs from the same group. I better get them on the mill.

Keep the pictures coming. I enjoying seeing that happy faces.
I was young and dumb once. I got over being young a long time ago.

Today's happy customer got away before I could get a snap shot.

I got a bunch of 1x boards for his shed project.

Edit:
I went over to his place the next day and got some shots of it in place:

Today's happy customer was a returning customer who wanted a 2" thick piece of red oak to make a table top to go onto a set of singer sewing machine legs. He and his wife picked out a nice one. Thanks Tim:

This may be a bit off topic, but let me tell you about White sewing machines and one machine in particular. The house my family lived in when I was a small child was in California's Motherload and built during the gold rush. The bathroom was huge, and the only things in there were the toilet and this sewing machine and on the wall directly across from the machine hung the tp roll.  This setup was convenient to this little boy because it was fun to run the tp through the sewing machine, just get the paper started and treadle like mad.  The tp only needed occasional guidance. During one of these occasions, the last one as I recall, my right index finger found itself being sewn to a strip of toilet paper.

More off topic. ;D
Brenda bought a White treadle sewing machine at an antique store. She had some question about it and called up White about it. They sent her a copied manual for it!! I was shocked and at no cost. Must of been 50 pages. Very good customer service.

Saturday morning on my way to CT I stopped by one of my customer's and saw his stack of quarter sawn white pine, that I showed you before.
I thought he did a good job of stacking it:

I'd at least paint the buckets all the same color.  :D :D

Take steps to save steps.

If it wonít roll, its not a log; itís still a piece of tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not pieces of trees.

At least he has a pot to pith in.  but they are upside down.   :D  I think he did follow directions and get the load up off the ground.  As long as the buckets are stable on the ground, and therefore do not break, should be good.  If a side stress cracks a bucket it might fall.  We are just having a little fun, and prob. a little jealous since we never thought of it!
