Get it big enough and you can just cut the limbs off and send the tree through.

I've always believed that I didn't need a 10,000 sq ft mansion with gold plated toilets.....I'd be perfectly happy with a 2500 sq ft house....a few nice cars and a big ol shop...then spend the time and money on friends and family....

Leave the ridiculous stuff to the Hollywood people....

The tools don't make the craftsman....

You don't have to have money to be happy, but money can buy happiness.

No matter how big a sander you have a sawmill even a cheap one will yield lumber faster and cheaper.

Just was joking man.....A sander obviously won't work to mill lumber

If it took a dollar to travel around the world, I wouldn't have enough to get out of sight. But hey, I've got it all - wonderful family of 10 kids, 21 grand kids, (soon to be 22), a shop i can work in (when it's warm outside), a fair collection of toys, and healthy enough yet to enjoy it all. Life could be worse.

10 kids? Sounds like you may have needed to win a lottery just to feed your family!

Btw, congrats on #22!

Congrats on #22

Cut it twice, measure once and it's still too short.
