« Part 5: beaming with excitement Part 6 of the stairway series Part 7: the landing »

As I was close to finishing up cutting, they called and said contractor “forgot” a piece on the list. It was only the biggest piece he needed. A 16-1/2 foot 8×8. That’s how I spent my Sunday. I had to make new slabbing rails because the ones I have wouldn’t go that long. Got it cut and delivered. 88 board feet by itself. Up to about 840 board feet delivered. A couple hundred to go.

This will get a lot easier in the future. I am in the process of buying a bandsaw mill. When it’s set up I’ll post a blog on it. :-)

Those kinds of phone calls are good “problems” to have occurring in today’s economy. I also am curious about the gum wood. I am also real interested in seeing your mill once you get it set up and running.

I am planning on going after the sweet gum. Most of the comments I got were favorable for it. It will probably be 2-4 weeks before the Sawmill is up and running.
