Thanks for the encouragement everyone! Its always good to have people support your addictions.

I understand it will take a long time to dry naturally. I am okay with that. Honestly, I probably won’t get to it for a number of years anyway. I have sooooo many projects lined up, I won’t even be tempted to do anything with the lumber until its dry.

Don: I did read your post and it concerned me. It was the first review of the saw mill which I saw that evaluated the HP requirements for the mill. Generally I am a very patient guy, though at times I can be in a rush. I’m used to using the 60cc class of chainsaws in my job, so I wonder if I’ll be disappointed with the 50cc saw.

I don’t know how many trees he has, but I will only attempt to tackle one tree at a time. That way, if I decide its not worth it there’s nothing lost.

Thanks for the tip on buying the larger mill. I don’t know if I’ll ever upgrade my saw, but I know some guys who have larger saws, maybe they’ll let me borrow them for a day.

Now I just have to wait for the weather to improve. There’s no point in felling a tree with a few inches of snow on the ground. It’ll just make for a big mess.
