Barb was feeling better last Thursday, so we took a jaunt up to our cabin for the day.
We new in advance what to expect when we got there. Our good Neighbor called us a about it.
A big old Black Spruce tree, between 90, & 100 years old, had blown down right in front of our cabin.
He was kind enough to cut some of the lower branches that were on our dock.
We were fortunate, because it missed or dock by an eye lash. It destroyed a glider, but I didn’t feel too bad, because it was a store bought one. We were also lucky that it missed our old boat.
Barb took some pictures of the project.
Before the Storm.
Our first look at the damages.
See how close it was to the dock.
The poor glider!

Prying the pinched logs apart.
De-liming the top portion. Notice: not much water, it used to be about 4” below the deck stringers.
Cutting to 52” lengths. Water should be above the knees.
Wood was punky near the base of the tree.
Building a log supply. I plan on making an sawmill attachment for my Rikon band saw.
