Well after a long winter of cutting and welding steel I have finally finished my mill. It is a Linn Lumber 190-A model that I built from their plans. They are great to deal with BTW. I built the track last week and set the mill on it this weekend. Today I bought the DH kiln plans from Daren. I plan to start milling as soon as the kiln is built.

Way cool. You can bring that to my home if you want to. I don't mind. I know I can find a lot of pine and aspen around here, a good deal of it being free. LOL.

It looks great. I'm happy for you.

Yeah, that's pretty much the whole reason I went through the trouble of building this thing. I get 90% of my logs for free. I love me some quarter sawn oak !!!

Damn, that's funny. I did take all the academic crap in school. I'm actually an IT specialist but like to build and restore things. I've been restoring muscle cars for about ten years. This gave me a tremendous edge on building my own mill. Now I just need to learn how to build furniture and cabinets with all the lumber I'm going to have.
