Saw milling logs to lumber
We had 2-3/4 cords of softwood logs that had been sitting for a couple years. Past due really. Nothing nice about them, from the age to the dirt and limbs hanging off of them from being harvested with a processor.

Maxing out the saw mill.
This was going to be a workout for sure. This pine log has a width that nearly is the maximum cut that the mill can make.

Shiver me timbers
Shiver me timbers. It was going snow well. I won’t pine about it. I’ll just lumber on.
Making the most of what comes along
A neighbour is clearing a recently acquired lake side lot. These logs were all destined for the burn pile. I could not let that happen 🙂 So in a trade for helping clean up the brush, I got to take these logs to the work yard. They are 8 and 10ft lengths. Most likely will all be made into 2×4’s.
Milling Sticks for the Kiln Lady
We were contacted by a lady, Teresa, who lives not far from us, for 1 x 1 inch or smaller sticks of wood. She also specified they be no longer than 22 inches. She has an outdoor pottery kiln and those are her requirements. She asked for us to cut up about a cord of wood to start. People…That’s a lot of milling!!
New Floorboards for an Old Trailer
We have had this trailer for nearly 12 years. It is well used for hauling mowers in the summer and the quad with plow in the winter. It has even carried logs. While the metal body is hard looking, it is what it is. Can’t do much about that now. We have known for a while that the floor boards needed to be replaced. One of those jobs you keep putting off for later. Well, we don’t have much choice now. Jim was stepping up onto the deck of the trailer to get on the ride-on mower and he put his foot right through the floor. Ouch.
Air Dried Sugar Maple
We’ve had a couple of sugar maple logs air drying outdoors for 2 years now. Decided it was time we move them into dry storage. They were weighed down and covered with a sheet of steel roofing to keep the rain and snow off them.
