Milling Lumber

We milled a large quantity of black walnut, red cedar, and green ash with a neighbor and his band-saw mill earlier this summer.  Below are a few photos of our operation.

Some of the logs piled in the field.

Slabbing off a decent quality and sized black walnut log…

some of the boards 25″ wide…

some lead slugs from deep in one of the 100 plus year old red-cedars…

the slugs, still in the tree…

A hay loft full of lumber, almost everything was plain-sawn into boards and slabs from 4/4 up to a few 6″ slabs, all with natural edges remaining.
