I actually love doing it. If it was faster it would still be my preferred method. Video it done excellent.

Good job! Free logs? Sweet. Liked the ladder idea. I’m doing the video stuff, and just locating some music. Waaaaaaay behind you. LOL!
Transitions looked pretty good. Are you going to do more?

Doc, you cant be too far behind…probably just using different software. I recorded myself milling the log on Sunday with my ipad, downloaded an application called iMovie to my ipad and put this video together last night (Monday), and posted here this morning for some fun reviews!!. I’ve never tried to do any type of video editing before, so I chose to use one of the built in templates that already had text sequencing and music laid out for me for use as my “tutorial” on how to use the application. I do intend to make more videos with my own creative layouts and sequencing once I learn how to use the program better. Thanks for the compliment though!

(short explaination?) I stopped working for IBM just before the desktop came out. So I was familiar with that system and have go down thedark side road. LOL!
I am always over the top in my expectations. Oh yeah if you can add the numbers I’m a little slower in learning new stuff. LOL! My wife is the techno junkie.
But I’ll get there, just a bit slower, oh yeah have a job that pays some bills that needsmy attention.
You will get better. My friend who edited my wedding tapes (vhs LOL) said “Tom you are the only one who will find thelong stuff interesting.” And my sister in law who watched the extensive footage of a road trip…”Wow I felt like I went on that trip with you….” LOL!
But if you are teaching, KISS (keep in simple stupid) and do a storyboard.
Me I’m reviewing me in the shop and saying “Nope!..LOL

jakaypur: the mill is pretty cool, fun to use if you like sawdust, exhaust, and wielding raw horsepower in your hands!! It really helps to have a large cc chainsaw, mine is a stihl 066 with a big bore kit, (love the power, not so good with fuel consumption). Chain sharpening technique is critical for speed vs. smoothness of cut, which I am still fine tuning. The log in the video is 5’ long, 30” at the widest spot, and took about 8 min per cut for the first few slabs, then I realized I was working too hard so I resharpened and improved that time by close to half (i have to go back and watch the video again for exact time after sharpening, but I can tell you it is a very noticeable difference when you get it right!!) I easily paid for the $200 mill attachment in lumber savings the first time I used it, (unless you count time and effort as a cost), and I really enjoy using it so it has been one of my best tool purchases! I hope you get an opportunity to purchase or build one, I’m sure you will like it.

Sweet. I agree, the alskian mill was one of my best investment. Right out of the gate I built 2 sheds that easily paid for the mill and the new husky 395. Since then I have no idea how much I’ve sawn. I’ve since moved to a bandsaw mill. I’m getting to old for the grunt work.

There’s just the little issue of space, and a chainsaw, and space, and the wife, and space…..
Cool video dude, thank you for sharing!

Great video, short and very much to the point, shows the work necessary without overstating it, but letsyou know what sweat equity really is. Thank you for sharing and making us wish we had just a little morewonderful wide wood.
