Another step in the process: I was able to get out and pick up the saw, a Stihl 046, and the 36” Alaskan mill.
I may not realistically get to the cutting stage for another week or two, but the excitement has not passed. I’m looking forward to it…just need to find a whole day that I can take to work on this…and those are rare! I’m also working on a bed frame – so there’s gonna be some juggling of time and resources around here!
Also, I may look into getting a ripping chain for this set up in the interim. Also, I’d like to record (video) some of the milling process if possible – for the fun of it. Not sure if I’ll be able to swing that though!
