« Part 6: Got a Nice Elm and some Poplar Part 7 of From Logs To Lumber series Part 8: Got a couple of large Black Walnut Logs »

Hi

Well got all the logs milled and the lumber on stickers. I think there is about 2000 BF total. I have a few Cherry slabs a couple 16/4 and some 12/4 and 8/4. plus lots of 4/4. About 600 BF of Cherry and about the same in Hard Maple. The rest is some Poplar, Hemlock, Elm, White Pine, And one not real sure what it is might be Ironwood. Here are a couple pictures of the 2 stacks of lumber.

You can see some of the Cherry slabs in this one

If you had been watching my other blog it was under new toy and I had milled the logs myself with the sawmill.

Looks like a nice supply of wood to keep you going for a while.

That is a wonderful stack of wood. It would be a lifetime supply for me. But it would be fun trying to find uses for it. :)

Nice. It rained cats and dogs here today…no milling for me. I put my stickers closer together than what it looks like in your pictures (18” max, closer on reaction wood like small logs)

The stacks are over 6’ high and 4’ wide, that is how my dad has stacked his lumber for years. The long boards on the bottom are 12’ 6” long. He has had very few problems with stacking that way, might get a couple boards get wild out of the whole stack. But you will get that even if you put stickers real close. By having the stack high you get a lot of weight on the boards and that helps keep them flat.
