« Part 3: Russian Olive and Mesquite have similar bark Part 4 of Milling Lumber from Arizona Residental Trees series Part 5: Moving logs and new destinations on what I am milling. Opps No Russian Olive. »

Only one tree milled today. These logs are massively heavy to move about and now that Milling is going well. 7 to 10 minutes per cut, need to better work out moving and turning the logs. This Mulberry was heavy to the last cut. Milling on the ground is not good for my back nor best for the process, however, getting the logs up onto my Truss carriage took hours to do and move the carriage into a position where I mill. Might be time to really think out log moving as based on just milling three logs a day is not out of the question. I know a bandsaw would be faster, but just no room. I am having a couple of riggers come over and see with the material handling I have we can cut the time out. Time to ask for help and maybe weld something up.

Thanks. After I cut this piece and turned it over a lot of tension on the day released. Yeah, that’s why I do this. Love your work. Some incredible work with beautiful use of species of wood.

Have your say...
