The trick to sawing those wedges is making it look like you meant to do it, when the customer is watching.  ::)

I'm just getting into the long stuff this week. I'm surprised the Kubota picked up those 34' logs.

Nice looking wood.
Do you cut the side boards down to an easy to handle size?

Yes, it will be used for board and batten. I use my Milwaukee cordless circ saw to cut to length.

If it is a nice day on a Saturday, I move the lumber out of the barn.
That way my customers can get their wood on their own.
With bad weather I bring the wool out when someone want's some.
 

  

  

  

 

And while the lumber is out I work on the shead when I can.
 

 

All in a day cutting wood. ;D
