    Default And now I wait

    I got to hang with my neighbor the other day. Hes got a little 5 horse bandsaw mill. We did a few black walnut logs and a couple cherry. Now in a year or two I might be able to use it. Click image for larger version.

    That walnut looks to be like what we harvested yesterday -- except even less white! Probably not P.C., but this slogan occurred to me (in this particular context seems appropriate):
    Black Logs Matter.

    Are you going to sticker-stack and weigh down the stacks?

    Did you paint the ends?


    What kinda mill? I've been so itching for some kind, but don't want to spend too little and have to upgrade too soon.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.

    Sean, have you eliminated chainsaw mill from your options?

    I have a chainsaw mill. Way too slow, too rough of finish, fumes, waste of material from the thick kerf and extra planing.

    Great for larger pieces, and when you have to cut stuff down for fitting onto a bandsaw.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
