Just Getting Started

Hey guys, my HD36 is half built.  We have lots of dying Ash trees in my area. Im also wondering about milling a Hemlock (18"), should it be plain sawn or quarter sawn?

Yes.  How's the mill coming along?

Good judgement comes from experience... experience comes from bad judgement.

It's almost time for me to put an ad in our local classifieds to see if anyone wants trees cut down and removed.I work cheap the trees are the payment.

I see hemlock as similar to fir; for the most part, it makes better lumber than furniture wood. Not sure if others share that opinion.

That said, I do have some interesting grain fir (near the base swell, which was wrapped around a different tree) that I think I can make into something interesting.

munmin89, what mill do you have? I suspect you are trolling for business.
