Last weekend my brother in law and I milled (with the expert help of the sawyer) 7 oaks that we dropped over the winter. 5 of them are from the property where I was born and raised on, that he and my sister now live on. So somehow it seemed that the boards were even more beautiful as they came off the mill. We ended up with approximately 1500 board feet of several thicknesses. We can hardly wait for them to dry so that we can put the tools to them. Is it true that a watched board never dries? FYI: If anybody needs a sawyer in N.E. Illinois / S.E. Wisconsin this is your guy. A hard working professional at modest rates.
