My gloat isn’t as large as others but it’s great for what I do,

I finely got around to milling the stock pile of logs I had on the rack for close to two years, still more to go so I’ll be sawing for a couple days, the woods on the table are from left to right Arizona Ash, Spalted Hackberry and China Berry, I will be milling some Mesquite next, the boards inside on the drying rack are China Berry that I got from a Neighbor directly behind me, he had several of these trees taken down and the logs outside on the rack are what I have left to mill, they are China Berry, Texas Cedar Elm, Mesquite and Pecan.

You mill those on your bandsaw? What kind of jigs you using for that? I’m interested in doing something like that.

Randy,

Looks like you’re busy! Are you using a 3/4 or 1/2 inch blade? Are these out of the spaulting pit?

If you look at the third picture down you can see both the log sled and the bandsaw on the right, Tom since it’s a 14” bandsaw (riser a must) I’m using only 1/2” 3 tpi blades, the blades I get from a local supplier that makes them for me, $10.00 a pop.

Here is the sled

Here’s the saw, along with the custom base I made for the saw.
