It's been a while since I saw the inside of Massey hall.  That is a great building, look forward to seeing the addition.

I'm thinking bringing one of my tractors that is sitting under a  tarp to the porch might not have the same outcome as you . It might have something to do with my wife being 1/2  Hungarian and the other German- Irish  ,   either the tractor or myself  (  maybe both)   wouldn't live through it lol

About a year and a half ago, I dropped a few big white pines.

At that point I milled the logs into cants for future use. Getting the bark off

stops the pine bores from destroying the wood.

Doing it that way made it easy to mill up a few sticks, in a couple of

hours this aft.

It would be nice to be able to mill my own lumber. You always get the right dimension you want. Nice job Will!! :thumbs:

And I saw the Massey hiding in the back ground of the one picture. :watching_you: :D

Brian, it's the best tool I've ever bought.

It's paid for itself several times over.

Nothing like having a lumberyard in your backyard. :smilewink:

You got that right Brian!  I have everything else I'd need as far as handling logs, but no mill.  Will, you need to get some video of the mill in action!

When we lived in N.C. we had a guy just down the road that had a saw mill and we could always get what we needed from him, a lot better lumber then you buy at one of the chain lumber yards for sure.

Daniel, I'm surprised your Dad didn't ever build one. He certainly could have and did build most everything else Y'all needed. He is one amazing Gentleman.

Back in the old days, mills were pretty close & he could have his own logs sawed for near nothing.  Our chicken bar, now serving as our shop & calf barn was built from logs from our farm, as well as the old large barn next to my house.  The mill we get our sawdust from is only 3 miles away.  His prices are good on lumber, but nowhere near as cheap as if I owned my own mill.

Will, good luck with the project.  You lumber looks great.  Thanks for showing us the mill.  Maybe we'll see a video in the future, that would be terrific.

Good Stuff Will, it won't take you long to get that done.

Got any extra space?

Now you've got me thinking, that I should add on to the addition, before it's built. :rolling:  :rolling:
