1 x6

I have a large pile of 8' logs that need to be milled this year or they won't even make good fire wood. Had some time yesterday morning and this morning so sliced up a doz. or more into 1x6. Next it will be 2x6 to finish off the logs. Other than the 1x6 when I finished up there were about 20 1x4's from the side lumber.

This is nice lumber most the logs had been peel for a few years so I lots a little to rot around the outside maybe an inch or to.

This pile is actually level but the pic. isn't surprise.

That is one neatly stacked unit of lumber, Bill.  The  bands sure help speed up handling the stack, not to mention, keep the lumber straight as it dries.

Thank you fella's, I built a backing board so when I pull them off the mill I have some thing to slide them against saves a bit of time fooling around trying to keep the pile straight.

I'd love to see the backing board idea and see how you keep them so nice and neat.Looks like it was done with a automatic lumber stacker wink.But it does look really good.

Nice set up, Bill.  That loader's got to be a real help around the mill, but there's no substitute for being neat and methodical in your work.  You're an inspiration.  Here's the alternative.  Please note:  This is not from MY sawmill!

Great job Bill.....I'm curious....how many hours approximately did it take you for the whole process of turning out that that 1 x 6 stack on the fork lift? ( not counting logging and skidding).

 

Thanks,

Gary

Not sure Gary I don't keep very good time but guessing 6 to 8, if saw serious it would take 4 to 6 hrs. log size plays a part in time taken,the logs I used would have been 8 to 12" dia.

The smooth sound is fit for the instrument for the challenges. Implication for the width and assignment writing help for the terms. The tip is issued for the runaway mark for the injunction for the voices of the citizens.

Games must be like those which are good for you. If you play such games which are not good for you, then you must switch to such games, which makes you act like Wallbeds Arizona does. This game is very good for children as it makes them strong and active.
