View on YouTube I visited Michael Cooper in January of 2016. Michael is an unbelievably creative and talented guy. His body of work is so impressive that you will have to see it to believe it. He and his wife, Gayle, are as friendly, nice, and down to earth as Michael is talented. If I had to sum them up in one word it would be “Wonderful”.

This is what I have been up to lately. Bought a cd2100 Husky and a milling attachment. Now I can turn logs into timber. Milling a blue atlas cedar here. Fun!!
My friend, Julie, who gave me a downed wild cherry tree, said they had taken down a hackberry tree in their yard and her in-laws, a silver maple, was I interested? Um, let me think about it YES! Hubby and I went to see. The hackberry had been ‘hacked’. Maybe some spalting in there…possible bowl blanks? probable firewood. The stump was still standing, about 6-8 feet tall with a long forgotton clothes line imbedded in it. Kinda cool, a little bit of history. Went to look at...
I’m starting a project to build a giant oak table (along with a few other things) from a red oak tree from my Grandfather’s old place Here is the specimen.

Hi everyone! My name is Will and I live in the upstate of SC and among other thinks I’m an amateur woodworker and aspiring lumber-miller. This is my first post on Lumberjocks but I’ve been following some folks’ projects and the forums for a year or so. About a month ago I took down four VERY large Bradford Pear Trees for my grandfather. It was quite a big job because, like many other ornamental species, Bradford Pear’s have very full crowns and therefore many, man...
