Yeah, in all honesty if there were a saw mill nearby that was reasonable in both costs and time I would not have bought my own. Like most folks that do woodworking it’s not that I need an endless supply of wood. One saw mill owner sold mineral rights to his land and got rich….he don’t worry with a saw mill anymore. The other one I used had his wife get sick and no telling when he will be back online so I just got my own.
I don’t know, I am still glad I have it and probably would have ended up with one eventually anyways. It is something I have always been interested in. Probably the neatest thing about it is when you luck onto what looks like might be a nice log with some good figure hidden inside and you saw it up to find it better than you ever thought it would be. That said, one of my favorite woods, hickory, has proven to not have much figure. I always wondered why I hadn’t seen any….now i think it must be because it just doesn’t get that way.
