My daughter just loves trips to the sawmill

Made a run to sawmill today, to get some material to do some turning, of course my 5 year old gets exited " daddy daddy I wanna go to wood place". I always take her.
But today I made a big deal out of it for her,

I let her pick some material, let her watch them cut some logs, she had fun, and in turn, made my day.

Now its "daddy make me a bowl"

It's all fun and games until someone loses the Walnut.

I guess it's a thing about Texans. Or it could be the kid in me because I also injoy the mill.

I take my kids out to the ranch when I harvest so they can call 911 if I have a tree fall on me or cut off an appendage. But they like it. They come out to the backyard several tines a day to see what I'm butchering.

10 year old keeps telling me she wants to turn something and I may let her. In a few years. In a set of full plate armor.

It is hypnotic to watch the changing topography of each slice as it comes off the mill.
And the smell - pine, red oak, walnut, BIRCH!
It is a joy to watch a youngster discover these things.

Unless you're crouching down pushing a little chain saw mill sled through really hard wood in 102 degree heat.

You got a point there!
I was nostalgically remembering my youthful trips to the mill as the sawyers ran huge logs through their 52" round saw.
In October...55įF.
