btulloh,
Them are some nice round straight logs. It seems half of the logs we get wouldnt roll well so we only stage 3 or less so we dont get a bunch we would have to move if the forklift was required to turn one on the mill,

Firefighter, you've got a perfect spot there. Get the mill up in the air and throw up a nice lean to and you've got it made in the shade.

Pc, i get lucky on the logs some of the tree guys bring me. The ugly stuff gets forked on from the other side of the mill. Some of them just end up as firewood. The ugly pine i usually just saw out as 6x6.  Funny thing is they still look better than the 6x6s I see at HD.

My mill is under a new building now. ;D

Those oak trees around that area has died off. Something has been killing oak trees around my parts. :o We still don't know what it is. :o I have 7 dead now in that area that I need to fell.

I have noticed that the lumber I get from rough logs looks better than some from the big box stores. My customers notice too. Sometimes we load up a log to saw and in the process of sawing the ''ugly'' off the middle looks pretty good to me.

I have had 1 individual that bought enough barn siding form me to cover the ''road'' end of 3 buildings and totally panel the inside of one large building for a flea market. He had a carpenter doing the work. That carpenter had a client that wanted to panel the inside of an old barn to make it into a rustic wedding chapel. Between the 2 jobs we have cut 20,000 bdft of barn siding, all from a word of mouth that I have no Idea who the original ''mouth''was.

Btw those paneling guys like ugly.

That picture of my mill is on its current location, but I'll be moving it home where I don't have as nice a spot yet. I will some day, but for now I will get a carport and set it up on the 6x6's.
