I was able to made a trip out to a local sawyer and his log yard this last weekend. What a fun time this was! I bought a walnut log and had so much fun watching it be milled just like I wanted it. Buying the wood this way is a definite savings big time , but I do have to let it dry now. SO we wait!

Video available to those who wish to see it. Thanks!!!!

That is so cool. I haven’t had the chance to get wood from tree to sticker. I imagine it will make the finished product that much more special. I, like so many others, only get the final rough cut wood.

Are you going to paint the board ends?

It looks cracked and case-hardened beyond saving already. Stickering is off by at least 0.2 degrees in a few areas too. Probably good firewood though.

No the ends of the log were already painted with anchor seal.

I love sawing my own logs. Every cut can be a present. Enjoy your wood.
