With current pricing and availability of lumber these days, I decided to clear out a few subdominant poplar trees and have them milled into framing lumber. Ideally, I would like to build a solar kiln for drying lumber +/- fire. However,t out here on the farm we always seem to be using 2x4's etc. for small barn, etc. projects. I should be good-to-go for several years now. We also milled a little cherry crotch, a small red maple and made a bunch of sticker for drying said lumber.
