I love to work with wood, and what better way than to start at the tree. I love to browse through my woodlot and think of what interesting uses a tree could be used for. A Mister Sawmill bandmill is what allows me to bring this vision to fruition. I finally made a trip with the van and brought home a load of eastern red cedar, osage, and cedar elm that came from dead trees and culls. I have a blog called the Texas Woodlot that I use to chronicle the trials and tribulations of attempting to manage a sustainable woodlot in Texas. It also has info on forestry books and my pond that is on the property as well. I will be using the Lumberjocks project page and blog to chronicle what is created from this wood. Here is a picture of some of the cedar I brought back:
