My buddy Jim and his son Zane brought over a Mom "pinteresty" project.  Megan took apart a hutch, turned it upside down to make a "dresser"  for their bedroom.  She refused all help from anyone, I was told, until  it came to fabricating the top, and making a fix for what was the underside of the bottom shelf, now the top shelf.  had some wood in the container at 8% and 22 inches wide.  thought it was a stack of oak, May have been ash.  @Southside   :D



 

made the top and insert for the shelf below.  used a simple round over to match the simple profile present on the piece.  note the crown molding on the bottom.  DanG Pinterest.

Yesterday's happy customer came by to get some dry pine boards for his shed. Got what he wanted and some sticker stock for battens as well.
He was a returning customer. An out of work fisherman.
He said he'd be back for more.

I got some pickes from nurse Gabe, from Wichita.  we milled the proverbial maple oak @Southside for his basement beams.  he had lots of question about stairs.  I copied some pages from a book and told him a few tricks of the trade.  he sent me this.



 



 

He and more importantly, his wife, are very happy.  seems they like wood, and of course they got it for a good price.   :)

My cardiologist buddy on a day off.  was going to even up an oak log with a router sled.  had him squared away in a few minutes.  He looks a little dorky but does jujitsu so I did not say much.  even gave him a 1/4 inch cookie to hang on the wall.  the big one will be a table.

also had a PA from work come with his family.  got some ash out and ripped into some baseboard and window/door trim.  he is finishing his garage and has most of the sheetrock done.


 

and a pediatric colleague, sent her husband to get some cookies for some firepit tables.


 

these are pine, and I forgot to take a picture so he sent me one in their backyard.  busy couple days.

forgot to mention, the est. weight of the locust was about 5600 pounds.  I set it "gently" on the deck but it slid sideways, and off the blocking.  guess I need a strap like custom sawyer.  I also got the crescent tool for pulling nails after out last trip to Georgia.  and saw Jake's in action.


 

guess this could have gone on the did something stupid thread.   :D  .  I had 3 in the shop.

I plant the jack (6 of them) on 2 inch blocks to keep them out of the mud.    I gave a nudge and with the 5600 pound log, slid sideways and then off the blocks.  log was at the limit of the max for the mill.  I know Jake had steaks and straps to keep his mill from moving sideways.  could have been worse.

I tried putting my mill up on blocks once at a job site to level it out.
and it fell off the blocks.
the decal on the mill shows either putting it up on blocks or digging out the area of the pad to level the mill.
Since it fell off I always carry a round point shovel to dig out for the pads.

   I mostly go the other route and take along several 2X6 on 2X8 cut-offs to put under the landing gear rather than digging in. I often put a 6x6 or 6-8 inch 12" diameter cookie cut off under the rear landing gear. I take 3-4 2' to 3' long 1X6's to drive the low side tire up on to more level the mill side to side. I have had problems digging in the landing gear especially in winter. Rain causes the mud to fill in the hole which then freezes and I have to take a spud bar to chip it free. I am using the factory landing gear from WM.

   I have knocked the mill off the blocks when loading a heavy log but never damaged anything. I take along an old bumper jack to lift and level the mill when the jacks aren't enough.

got a pic of the mailbox holder out of ERC.  I told him I forgot to get a "happy customer"  pic when we were done milling.  Here is Kendall (IT at the hospital)and his Troop 1 eagle scout son, with the resulting stand.  



 

here is the start of another.  Roger is our ED pharmacist.  we milled some honey locust.  he did the joinery, and returned for some house numbers.  



 

more pics when finished.  they like rustic.  rough sawn, no finish yet, and as some warned, it is "moving around like a prostitute in church!"  cleaned up a bit! :D

@doc henderson ,

  So you guys have Roger the ED pharmacist. Does he just dispense ED medications like Viagra and such? :D

The mailbox post looks good but Honey Locust is not known to be very rot resistant with ground contact.  :-X

he talked about burning the surface.  we spoke about the green coating to help.  It is dense so that may help.  His wife was thrilled and painted it and they put it in today after work.  Hedge would have been a good choice for a 50 year installation, but I did not have any that big.
