I thought my fellow Lumber Jocks could relate to a day at the sawmill. My version of the “Old Mill” actually has 8 seperate rooms in it for the birds. Projects like these are great for using up some of the scraps of wood laying around that were too good to toss. I hope you like the L.J. Lumber & Feed Mill. Thanks for looking.

WOW!! That is so cool. The sign says “NO GLOATING” but you can gloat all you want about that bird house/lumbermill.

Nice job, you do killer timber framing on a small scale. I like your miniature building. Does the water wheel turn the saw blade?

Looks like you could pull up to the mill and load up your truck with wood. Nice birdhouse . I bet a woodpecker ends up calling it home.
