Good evening all, been rainy & cool today & yesterday. I could not do any outside work on our new shed base so I finished up the sliding barn door for the woodshop in the basement. I even put the poster I had from The New Yankee Workshop on the outside of the door.

Spent the day yesterday at a friend's rural property chainsawing an apple tree that came down in the recent ice storm. Took some nice crotch pieces for turning. Also took a couple chunks of honeysuckle wood just to see what that will look like after turning. I didn't find much info online about whether it will be worth it, but I had never seen a honeysuckle that grew so big -- the truck was over a foot in diameter! (It's considered an invasive here in Michigan.)

Matt! Bill! Glad to see ya!
Enjoying some beautiful OH spring weather but struggling with lumber storage. I’ve got the 4’x8’ cart built for the most part with the off cuts storage on the far end but… I don’t like it. Tempted to take the A frame supports down and just stack and sticker all my long boards on it and sore the shorter stuff on the bora wall racks I have just so I can move forward with moving in. Lumber is 60% of what’s left to move in! #woodhoarder

I built a short "A Frame" with a 2' x 4' base for any sheet stock that accumulates, for the short stock it usually ends up behind the runout tables for the RAS, and I have a set of shelves above that for storage. Then again, I have a loft at each end of my shop for some lumber.
