We started on building a shed this past week. We recycled 2×6 pressure treated boards that came off of a deck we dismantled a couple years ago.
Diary of a sawyer (newbie stage)
I have been trying out some different band saw mill blades this past month. The blade on the bottom having already gone through the mill, past due for sharpening, the result of this newbie sawyer not knowing when to stop and change the blade. The top blade is a different brand, new out of the box and ready to start cutting.
It was a quiet weekend here, uneventful really, just how we like it. Saturday was hot and humid but Sunday was cool and cloudy. We spent Saturday morning revisiting the first side of the shipping container.
Hard to believe how fast the weeks go by. Not complaining that its Friday but just sayin.
It has been raining off and on since Sunday so no work on outdoor projects, but it is a good time to get caught up on our indoor projects.
The forecast called for rain all weekend but we went out Saturday morning anyways to see what we could get done before it started to rain.
A neighbour we had never met before contacted Jim to see if we were able to bring the chipper over to his property. He had heard us using it at our house.
On the weekend we started on the second side of the shipping container board and batten project.
We didn’t waste any time getting back to operation cleanup!! The next morning we headed out and first up was loading the newly re-built wood bin with the pile of maple firewood we picked up for free in Guysborough. We had to cut and split them. I just set aside any that were too large and they would be split smaller later.
Before we move on to the other side of the shipping container we decided to do a much needed cleanup of our work area. In the background of this pic you can see the 2 large piles of logs that need to be dealt with.
