This is a shop I built in the woods from lumber I sawed from trees on my place. It is 16’ x 24” and too full. I hope to add on to it this winter. The addition will be air condtioned and heated – I want to increase my time making sawdust and as I get older I need a more comfortable environment.

The second picture is my Wood-Mizer sawmill at a customer’s location. Rarely do I get to set up out of the weather.

Fred, that is a nice pile of lumber that you have there and I am sure it is wonderful to have a woodmizer. About 6 years ago I had to have two ash trees and a cherry, which was about 70 years old, taken out. I tried in vain to find someone locally to saw them into lumber but had no luck doing so and had to let them go for firewood. Seeing the cherry go like that was enough to make me want to cry (I made sure I stayed at work until they had finished taking it down).

Your shop looks and sounds interesting. Any chance we could get some pictures of the inside?

Fred that is a wonderful building I could live in that and my wife and the cats could live under that shed where you have your woodmizer,,I love that thing, I had one for about 3 years and it almost killed me with a heat stroke or whatever it was. If I could have one that sounded like a Harley and smelled like a sawmill I would be in heaven…
That is too cool..enjoy

Gentlemen and ladies, the picture of the sawmill I took at a jobsite where I was sawing the siding for the barn. The lumber you see stacked was for the board and batten siding.

Henryj383, I used to want a Harley myself but now I would rather have a new sawmill. I have experienced the heat stroke symptons, luckily I have a day job, so I could recover before I went back to the weekend sawing job.

Thanks for your responses, regards to all!
