    A Willow Oak, a new chainsaw and some abandoned wood

    It was a willow oak, which is a member of the red oak family. Didn't have any black willow.

    Beautiful bench top (seat?)! I hope she's excited and ready to plan another trip to build another project with you!

    The boards are close to 8'. I'm excited to see what it all looks like after surfacing it!

    A Willow Oak, a new chainsaw and some abandoned wood

    Dropped the oak off to the mill on Friday last week, he called Wednesday and it was done! Went by today to pick it up! Now to wait! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Your comments leave me a little curious Brian. Other than Matthew working by himself and possibly using some questionable lifting methods and hand drilling/taping way too many holes, what safety violations and tomfoolery scares you? He completes the build with full guards and (to my sawmill...

    I've got way too many irons (or half finished projects if you asked SWMBO) in the fire now, I'd better hold off on that build ;-)

    I recently got sucked into Matthew Cremona's build, really makes me want to build a mill! Here's a link to the playlist of his build.

    Baltic Birch 3/4 x 4' x 8'

    Do these hold true to their thickness? (i.e. 3/4's is 0.75" thick?) The answer doesn't change my interest, but it may convince a buddy to get a couple of sheets.

    Baltic Birch 3/4 x 4' x 8'

    @frankc4113 If you're still interested in coordinating this purchase I've gotten a commitment from another person. I'm good to grab six sheets (maybe 1 or 2 more if that helps close the deal). Thanks! Phillip

    Baltic Birch 3/4 x 4' x 8'

    I'd be in for 4 sheets at $53/ea. Happy to prepay as well. Also, I'll haul sheets back from Pinehurst to a stop in the greater CLT area for those interested in joining in.

    A Willow Oak, a new chainsaw and some abandoned wood

    Earlier this spring my neighbor had an old Willow Oak fall during a thunderstorm. So we limbed it up and left the trunk. The tree was larger than any chainsaw either of us owned. I took this opportunity to convince SWMBO that I just had to have a Husqy 460 Rancher with a 24" bar to "help"...

    DaveO - Got everything home and unloaded! Thanks again! The boys were very intriqued by your fan and had to tell Erin all about it when we got home! Safe travels and keep us posted, you're headed out on fantastic adventure!

    Ugly Drum Smoker

    The microwave welder was a fun project. You rewrap one side of the transformer so that the voltage is stepped down to 30ish volts which increases it's amp output. Put two of them in series and you can stick weld some light gauge material. It was more a proof of concept than a solid welding...
