Packed up all the stuff this morning. Worked at the bike shop till 1p, then to Tony’s (bike shop boss). My first go round milling oak today. Lemme tell ya, it’s some tough chit to csm. Got the first cut board mounted and let er rip. This was my first time milling with the saw after Shaun ported it. It ripped down the log like the proverbial hot knife through butta. Granted there was a lot of sap wood there. Next cut went about just as fast. I was excited! Made a third cut and decided to give the chain a few swipes with the file to freshen the edge, then dove in to the good stuff. So yeah, almost 10’ long! I think I could have mounted the 28” bar instead of the 42. Next time I go, it’ll be the 28. I made the widest cut with the chain not fresh. Took one full tank of gas. Thirsty she is! Some nice lookin’ oak! So I left with this still in the ground. Tony mentioned wanting a bench from this wood. I may try and make them legs from rounds. Or I could flatten the bottom side for something more traditional. And this is what I still have on the ground. The log in the front will more than likely get cut in half and milled. The rest may go for farwood. Below is more heat. And it’s the first time I had a gas powered leaf blower. Where has that been all this time! I’ve used an electric before but never on site. So 6 cuts almost 10’ long. I used just under 2 gallons of mix. I am frickin’ BEAT!
