Just want to say I thoroughly enjoyed the picnic today (as did Lou Ann). The food was good and the company was great. I hope to see pics taken by others that were there. It was a great day – no snow – and there was a lot of free wood and veneer brought in by Dustin and Mike for all to take.
Thanks for the great time, and the trip to the sawyer netted me some nice walnut. I have an idea or two for it – hope to be able to post the results before the end of this year.
Below are a couple of pics taken at the picnic and mill. Great meeting everyone; we need to do this again (minus the cold weather!).
Here Kelvin (owner of Raven Farm) is talking about his planner w/helix head. Among those shown (l to r) are Rustic (Rick), his wife (Nancy??), and Kshipp (Kyle) & his wife Kristen. Hidden behind Kelvin is Jockmike2 ??(Mike) and behind Kyle against the rack is my wife Lou Ann.
-- I've never seen a tree that I wouldn't like to repurpose into a project. I love the smell of wood in the morning - it smells like victory.
