Nice whack of logs.  That reminds me, I need to pick up a load of free logs today, or the owner is gonna burn them.  :o

Fish, Do you want a 34" Pecan, or am I going to Hack-N-Squirt it?

It looks nice and warm for getting those logs, opposed to me on Sunday picking logs up , that were buried under the snow, and slip and slide as I try to parbuckle them up the trailer, change gloves that are wet for dry ones, try not to sweat to much under all the heavy clothes, so you don't get cold when you stop working....

Magic: pecan makes some pretty lumber especially at that size- I cut up a couple last summer that are stickered and drying now and the boards look great.  I'd grab it if it's sound and make some nice quartersawn boards at 4/4 or 5/4...  if the trunk is straight, I'd definitely make something out of it.

I'm carrying all that my wagon will hold now.  Fish is considering coming over with his swinger and getting it.

I may finish sawing the Cabin Addition lumber tomorrow.  Plus, a couple of saw jobs are starting to push.

The rain slowed me down a bit, but I finished sawing the Cabin Addition lumber today.  Since I was working by myself, I had to just sorta dead stack/pile it up.  I have a Grandson that will help me sticker it tomorrow.  We will also haul the slabs to the road and I will put my "Free Wood" sign back up.

My plan was to be able to sticker as I sawed.   :-\

Since I have no building plans, my lumber needs will change as I build.  I may very well need additional lumber later.  My interior wall paneling hopefully will be salvaged barn lumber.  My ceiling will be metal shingles that I salvaged from my Grandparents old home.

The good thing is that I have no building requirements, permits, or anything like that to think or worry about.   :)  My next backache is to lay about 150 8X8X16 foundation blocks.   :'(

 


The roofing shingles came from this old home.  The barn is barely visible on the far left.  I'll have to get a good picture of it to document this project.

Good pile of lumber, Lynn. A lot to stack and sticker. I needed some 2X4's today so I grabbed a log and whipped out 24 right quick. I love having a mill and dead pine logs. ;D I was added that to my tally book and run a total. Little less than 50 thousand more feet and I can get me one of those black WM jackets. Guess I need to build a few more sheds before I'm too old to wear one. :D

And, get your name in the book.   :)   I haven't totaled up last year yet, but  I doubt that I will pass the big "M" this year.  There's a chance for next year.

I did get the stickering done today.  This old man's butt is dragging.  20' 2X10's and 16' 2X12's are heavy.  Plus all of those 2X6's, etc.

My get up and go has got up and went.   :-\

That's a lot of handling for any man. I have been going threw piles in the barn the last couple winters and cutting (high grading) the good from the bad (firewood). Some day I'll have to rebuild my lumber reserves.  I have also become a whole lot more educated as to which is potential twisty junk and what is likely to be decent lumber when it dries. The forum has been responsible for a good bit of this, but also a lot of hands on. ;D

I tallied my lumber this morning.  I've sawed 3200+bf, and the lumber tally shows that I should be OK with my framing needs.  I still need about 450bf of 1X6 for mudroom ceiling, etc.

I may just fell a Poplar to meet that need.

That's quite the pile of lumber you have there.

I know after a day of stacking and stickering it feels like your arms are a few inches longer  :D :D

Mostly stretches my knuckles.  I can hardly close my hands the next day,  :-\  well that, and the heating pad on my back.   ::)

I was about 450 bf short on my 1X6's and guess what? A guy just stopped by and asked if I wanted about 6 SYP trees. That should completely take care of my building needs. I will fell them, he will skid them, and we will load them.   :)

Nice looking pile all stacked and stickered! 8) I used to work building houses before the military, so I know those 2 X12s are quite hefty and akward getting them moved around.

Earlier this week a guy stopped by while I was sawing.  He said he had six 12' Cypress logs, but he didn't need that much lumber.  (Read, not much money.)  I normally don't trade sawing for lumber, but I really could use some Cypress on the Cabin Addition.  He said that he also had some very nice ERC logs  ???

Another friend stopped by and asked if I needed any more SYP?  Yup, 450 bf worth.  He said that he had at least that much beetle killed trees.  Things are looking up with the lumber needs.   smiley_thumbsup

Anyway, he brought the Cypress logs over and we sawed them in a couple of hours.  My take was 288 bf of mostly 1X8's.
