It’s official – I have processed my first log !!

Got the mill set up

Got a log loaded (pine)

Trimmed a cant

Cut some boards

The EZ Boardwalk was easy to set up and run. Sturdy frame and it just glides on the runners. Got a temporary cover over it for now.

Hope to mill some cherry, hickory, oak, and cedar tomorrow!

Looks like the start of something big! I was dreaming about a set up like that earlier today. For me tho, not in this lifetime.

Would love one, but think my city by-laws wouldn’t allow me to have one in my backyard. Not to mention, it wouldn’t fit!
