I Love the Sawmill!


I love salvaging wood. A friend had two cherry trees come down last summer…and they called me. Along with my friend’s husband and a loader, I managed to get three nice cherry logs.
The first photo shows my poor trailer, loaded to it’s max with one of the logs.
I took the logs to a local sawmill this past fall, he sawed them up and dried them in his kiln. He sawed them into 8/4 stock which always seems expensive to buy whenever I need it.
Went yesterday to pick up the wood and got some really nice boards.
Here’s a pic of the trailer (with a little less weight) with all three “logs” loaded.
It makes me appreciate the possibilities of things to come.
