So ever since the sawmill visited the first time, I’ve been drowning in wood. Then the second time he came around I was drowning in even bigger boards. I started digging through his first visits lumber, and I started to clean some of out.

After we added new tools I needed some more room. So I dug our all the wood, and rebuilt the stacks. That was sufficient for a while. So V 2.0 was done.

Last year the place I work for was getting rid of some old pallet racking systems they no longer needed so I jumped at the chance to bring them home. Well they say in my driveway all winter and into this spring.

Between the time I brought the racking home, and now, my supervisor brought me a trailer load full of walnut, cherry, oak, pine, Douglas fir, and some other random wood. Well I was officially buried!!!!!!!

The time finally came. Took a 4 day weekend, dug out the wood, put up the racking, and rebuilt.



We built in 8 individual boxes on one rack to help sort the wood by species. And I have gained untold amounts of floor space… which I’m still in the process of cleaning up.

It’s been a struggle dealing with the wood, but now it’s all coming together.

I wanted to try to get SWMBO involved. I told her I was just going to slap up some masking tape, and she could label all the bays and boxes. Well she had other ideas, and she made me these nice erasable labels for me.

Have your say...
