    Thanks! I figure I have another weekend or two worth of cutting and then I'll be splitting and stacking. My brother still has a bunch of ash tree's he wants me to take also so I'll probably be busy for a while. :)

    To a lot of us that indeed is a very nice odor. Perhaps after you cut for a while you too will be bitten by this sort of thing.

    I well recall when I first started working in a sawmill (as a teenager) that I just loved the smell of the freshly cut lumber. Well, most of it was good. Cottonwood I did not like then nor now. Sassafras is still the best.
