Just so people would not think I was kidding, this is 1/2 the shed the other half is full too. The best storage idea :no:, but there is some organization even though it looks like chaos. My "wood shop" is too small to have any wood in it, just barely enough room for my tools and me. A big project I can get cramped.My "wood storage" is a 40'x40' shed,
I sell a little wood (more than I use), that is why I need the "storage" .I just sold 2 fellers a 1/2 truckload of walnut and a couple curly maple slabs yesterday $$$. I cannot wait to see what they do with it, they are good woodworkers , it is in the right hands now (before I hacked it up :laughing.. I'm raiding Darren's shed next spring whe we drive out to Grand Forks, ND
I have several sources (building contractors/tree services/individuals...) I get my "yard trees" from a 50 mile radius, there are alot of trees in towns and some really neat ornamentals that you will not find in the timber because they are not a native species.Hi Again Daren
I am amazed that you encounter such a variety as an "urban logger".
Not at all, I hope you don't expect the right answers , convincing as they may sound :laughing:. I can at least slow the process of going broke sawmilling like your brother and myself, which will lengthen the fun :thumbsup: All joking aside, shoot me an email anytime.I hope you don't mind lots of questions.
. . . . . my own band mill is starting to look mighty attractive. . . . . . .Ed
It's no use, the idea is already in his head :bangin:. Once he cuts one of those honeylocust open...the fence idea will be out the window too, way to pretty for that. I ain't talking nobody out of their own mill, it's not fair we get to have all the fun :no:.Daren, try to talk some sense into this man. :laughing:
Wow, it's under $2 here (some Amish I have seen are $1.50). I don't even mess with it other than for myself. I barely break even sawing it to sell. I get $.35 bft to saw and $.35 bft to dry for others, logs go for $500-$600 per 1000 bft (if I had to buy them, which I would if I was sawing enough to sell on any scale) That puts me "investing" about $1.25 in lumber I could just go buy outright for another $.50 and not have all the work/waste... I have seen it advertised over $3.00, but I know they are not selling it for that just trying to.I am currently paying $3.45 a bdft for kiln dried 4/4 red oak
