Whoa! My in-house labor (wife) might complain a bit about helping me move that if it got delivered to my front door.
But what a nice piece.

Don't worry those hook marks turn right out. I got about 6 bowls all rough turned up in the shed drying...I mean frozen solid....it's a high of 6* here today....Saturday is a high of -2* or so they say..... Those bowls will thaw by March and then maybe dry enough to turn by June...

Wow buddy, I hear the bus backing up over me....

Really, as my wife says, I don't need any help getting myself into trouble...

I finally got some time and put the ceiling in the re-saw building. Just need the insulated garage door on the front and I'll be ready to start the electrical and baseboard. I may actually have a functioning shop if I'm not careful!

I'll have you know that between starting to move out of the house for remodeling and an addition....Making a cherry dining room table for an anniversary in April that I had to saw, dry, plane and try to straighten boards for that were of "less than select value" but sentimental so none of that matters, building a shed for the dust collector and compressor, either plowing snow or thawing pipes every other day and trying to pay some attention to Jill.......I have in fact turned 4 pieces of BE that are in paper bags or soaking in Palmolive and will be ready for finish turning sometime next month.....

I also turned a couple of pieces of that fine cedar that Joasis sent me...

I was even gonna saw up the other cant that had ring shake into boards the other day, but -1* and a 20 mph wind out of the NW told me ...."Go watch the Pro Bowl".......

Patients is a virtue........

Sounds like you don't have anything to do.

If I was you I wouldn't pay any attention to JP he's just trying to cause trouble.

Looks like road signs don't stand a chance either in your shop. Nice rig for moving wood to the bandsaw.

I got those signs from the county. They were brand new, but did not have the new required reflective material in them. A friend who works there called me and told me they had just hit the dumpster...

They're made 'otta some pretty good plywood...

Burlkraft,

I'm super impressed, I have almost the same band saw and what your doing there scares me. My kahunas aren't big enough. Surely you would have to have a heat issue also.

Yeah,, I never said anything either but what have you got against chainsaws Steve?

You could whack 'em up close then shave off a slice if you don't like the rough cut. Edumicate us on what's the reason!

He would say that I did in fact sell it to him. From my perspecitve I gave it to him.

Just jesting of course. A fair deal was struck and everyone was happy. I would like to give them away Mitch but I don't know how I would afford to stay in business.

Deyyrck,

We don't have much heat in Wisconsin this time of year....I have no idea what you are referring to....

I guess once you have a sawmill stuff like this just doesn't bother you...

TT...A chainsaw..???? After what I paid for this wood I can't be wasting any of it with a big 'ol chainsaw kerf....

I do have big kahunas tho.......
