my day : LUSENET : A Country Singletree : One Thread

went and cut a load of firewood, all oak, off of the state land this morning,, then cut down a large jack pine,, got 2 logs out of it,, took them to the mill,, what a pain, loading them into the p/u. Was planning on just droppping them off, bu thte guy wasnt busy, so we fired up the saw,, and he saw them right there on the spot,, when we were done,,I asked "how much?",, price was right,, he said "dont worry about it" !! I couldnt beleive it,, Im tired and sore,, but, its been a good day

Free lumber. does it get any better?

Guess the lumber was easier to load than the logs. How do you cure the lumber you just got cut or do you need to?

Stan do you remember the wood I had over on the barter board. I met the guy who got the lumber. He just went to pick it up yesterday. 1,100 feet of lumber. He said it was clear, no grain and some one took some of it for paneling. I am happy it will be shown off, I told him I would like to see the wood. I should get a check in the mail soon. Unfortunately the price was great for him, but it didn't cost me anything.

What do you use the Jack Pine for? They are trash trees around here.


-- Susan in MN (, April 06, 2002.

they are "trash" trees here also,, BUT,, if you can get one thats straight enough to cut, ,its one of the strongest pines there is, so the limber will be strong. Problem, is getting them straight enough to cut somthing out of it. ALL grren would should be dried, if your building something from it,,I just let it air dry,, the little warpage I do get,,isnt a real big deal
