    Oops. He's doing the one in Boonville in August. OK, though, I'm still open for it.

    [hink it was about 6 weeks after placing the first order that I was able to make my first run.[/quote]




    Smokin attached are three pictures of some white pine for milling, the first two pictures are the same tree at different times. The tree is 70 inches in circumference at 4.5 feet which should make the diameter 22.28 and looks to be about 24-30 feet tall.


    Picture 2900 I'm not even sure the location.

    2x4 2x6 Same thing slab them out and stack them up. Get way ahead just like the firewood. Once you have a big pile build up start your project. Need a mini mill but you have lots of work to do before worrying to much about it. I would go old school to real 2x4 real 2x6 and so on[/quote]



    I'll have the mini mill for end of June beginning of July. The first project will be something we can store the yard tractor plus ladders and a bunch of othe stuff.

    I would build it like any other shed. Start with a wood floor. frame up on top of that siding and roof same material and some shingle's. Pole barn style works to. Either will need simple slabs/cants raw material but ready material. More the better before the mini mill even gets there. This would be like owning your own lumber yard! Sweeet...

    Smokin/Thistle if I want to start making some stickers what can I buy (from the lumber yard) then cut down so that I'm ready on that end.

    Anything, 1 by 4 or 6 would be perfect. Cross cut at 1 inch.

    Yup. Buy the cheapest they got,#3 grade,furring strips or whatever you can get thats not all twisted or warped. Good luck with that,once they cut the metal bands on most lumber bundles,those suckers just go wild once the tension is released.

    I believe there's a pdf version of Chainsaw Lumbermaking on the net, not sure about it's legality though, copyrights and all that stuff.

    Smokin, I just called the Wood Chop Shop and they said the rails and the 36 inch mill came in yesterday afternoon so they will bring it from the canton store to the massena store which I'll be stopping by in the morning.



    I just hope everything came in correct.
