So I picked up these three logs almost a year ago for a friend. Well I broke my foot a couple weeks later and then we couldn't get to milling till recently. Thankfully he had 10 people show up to help with these. Made a long but fun day for us and the ole mill! 20201127_193006.jpg 20211023_152453.jpg 20211023_103224.jpg FB_IMG_1635032540883.jpg 20211023_184105.jpg

Nice mill and logs/lumber. Did you clean the sawdust off the grass after you were done? I have a few logs milled by a guy and he put a tarp down first to catch all the sawdust. When he was done he just rolled it up and scouped the sawdust into the trash.

Wonderful load of lumber! There's enough here for a few projects! Please let us know what you will be building -- would love to trace the journey of the logs into projects! Chuck

No tarp, homeowner put in the garden.

I just suggested the tarp idea after I saw it. Much easier than raking it out of the grass. I use one when I split on my rock driveway and into the trash it goes. Some woods like walnut aren't good for plants. Noodles do go in the flower beds though.

Can't say I have ever put sawdust in the trash. Have you?
All the time, I have no garden and can't really do anything with it.

I use a tarp when I chainsaw mill, yes it does make the clean up so much easier.
