    Yo, all this milling talk makes me think of 'Mass Wood', which I read a good article about just recently, can't find it now but here's a different one on it. Apparently it has amazing capability and is good re sustainability and climate change; more wood use equals less cement use/green house gasses https://www.bdcnetwork.com/mass-timber-what-heck-wow

    My understanding of the world is: no matter how fine of a job you do some jack wagon will say the opposite just because they are a jack wagon.

    I have used a 2x12 as a guide. Screw it to the log and shim as needed for flatness.

    Great post, 09, particularly about the roots of sailing. I too love sailing, have done a fair bit over the years living here on LI sound shore. Owned a couple 16' sailboats. Over time and age, less and simpler and lighter gear/hobbies have taken precedence so now i'm info ultra low tech, low maintenance , low weight paddle boards. But when I see 14' Hobie cats zipping over the water on a windy day, it makes a fella wonder ;)

    I'm gonna have to make 20' boards this fall. Still not sure exactly how I'm gonna handle it. The log will be 36"x20.5', oak. That's gonna be a bear to move without equipment. My current project is an ash log. I think it's 22"x10'. That's for practice setting up and using the mill. Not sure what kind of lumber I'm making with that. Maybe I'll make survey stakes.

    I donate the wood to a youth sports program, oak usually. Then the adults and kids assemble on a day with saws, splitters and trailers for delivery at 250.00 a cord. We'll drop 12 cord in an 8 hour day processing. I just volunteer my trucks, trailer, splitters and some saw time. Kids load em up. Older kids splitters. Running about 3. And that is how we get wood to widders. :lol:

    I've got a 25 foot macgregor, haven't been on it in years. Life got busy and it got put on the back burner. However i absolutely love sailing, there's nothing better in the world for me. The silence and violence of it is awesome, all contained by ropes. Me getting into sailing was the impetus for me learning splicing and more rigging, tree work followed shortly after. I'm pretty landlocked being in central Illinois, so I've only been on the Illinois river and the Peoria lakes (wide parts of the river that are lakes). I've been told if you can maneuver in a busy channel with idiots that don't understand who has the right of way under light airs just about everything will seem easy after that. Although there are very big lakes within driving distance, it always seemed too much hassle when i would rather just go on the water and party. I've wanted to take the boat back to lake Michigan (the boat has done the mackinaw race twice), but just never got around to it. If i went through it really well and fixed some of the stuff that needs attention, i could easily trailer it there, or Florida for that matter. As the kids get older I'm sure il get back into it, as boating is an awesome family activity. My sister just bought a sunfish, so i might go out on that this year. The other really cool thing about sailing is the history of it, because that's really the history of rope and rigging. For the last century sailing has had the connotation of a way for the rich to blow money, but for most of human civilization it has been almost exclusively in the hands of the working class. A vast majority of knots, splices, tools and techniques for all manners of rigging were developed by illiterate sailors who used rope to pass the time rather than reading. Just about every "advancement" in tree work is actually centuries old technology and techniques used with modern materials. The grcs, friction devices, rigging rings, saddles, etc. are all directly from sailing. Il have to hunt for more pictures, but here's one of me years ago in my driveway using the boom to determine how big the yellow jacket nest in the mast was during spring cleaning...

    I made one out of 2x4s, it's good enough, but I haven't used it enough to be sure it's great or if I should get metal rails. I think I put the boards on a jointer, but can't remember. My pile of nice ash logs are now modded saw testing logs instead milling them like the original plan was. Ash is miserably dusty to mill.
