More wood done today. Another good few days would finish it. It's just to get those days, between work and weather. But any way, it's gittin done.

I have 3 cords delivered so far, 3 more to come. Mine is already cut and split though. I have managed to get a bit loaded into the basement, but it has been raining off and on all day here. I might get some more in yet today, probably the rest tomorrow. The sawdust makes great mulch around shrubs like lilac, where they spread out and its hard to mow under them.

Makes great sweeping compound.  Soak it in water in a pail for a day or so.  Scatter in on you cement or wood floor before weeping.  Keeps the dust down to about nothing.

Put in barrel add kerosene or diesel just a bit and use it as a great firestarter!

Seen a guy melt wax and mix it in the saw dust. Said it made great firestarter. I never seen it used

Used a cardboard egg carton. Then when the wax was dried he cut the individual "eggs" out with the cardboard attached.

Works great in a pinch in the winter if your stuck. Lay some behind your tires whether on snow or ice and get great traction.

Learned that when I got my tractor/trailer stuck while leaving a sawmill on a supposedly plowed road after a 15" snowfall. Even the loader trying to pull me out got stuck.

Some use sawdust in the gardens to help break-up clay around here.
