    small gloat

    Went over to my buddies today to take down a cherry tree. Well we gotherdone. We got 4- 9 ft logs out of the trunk cut,loaded on the trailer and ready to bring to a small mill. Chuck will get them there monday as he was taking the boat to the river this evening, to try catching some of them river cats that (hopefully) will be begging to get on his line.
    Well after we got the main log cut it was my turn to get the rest for the lathe.We also took down a small beach that was in the way of the tractor dragging the cherry out.Well i just had to take the main butt of that also.
    O by the way the cherry logs will be coming to my house after there cut as this whole tree was mine for 28 years of friend ship.
    Didn't get any pics of the main logs but here are some pics of the leftovers and one of chuck going back in the house.

    I dunno Steve, that piece of crotch in the pics looks like it might be faulty. I think you should box that thing up and send it to the California authorities for further testing. I'll be glad to coordinate the process from here.

    Congrats on a great-looking haul.

    Thanks i'm hoping it will be.I did get the logs sealed so that's a start. now it's a matter of getting the wood cut into blanks.

    Frank we spent a lot of time building that place.It was always bouth our dreams to own a log cabin.As you can see he got his i didn't. I did build his cabs,mantle,vanitys,and trimed the house(price free for him) he did pay for materals.


    Here is a pic of the lumber from the logs we took to the mill today.Not bad for the grand price of 12 dollars.

    Tom. Chuck has known the man with the mill all his life, but he said he does the same prices for anyone, all you got to do is give him a hand if he needs it.

    Stephen I though the title to this post was "Small gloat"

    I would really not like to see your "Big Gloat" in the future.

    Boy thats a nice haul and I cannot believe it only cost $12 dollar to cut all that lumber. How does the guy pay for blades at that rate. Is this typical of what a sawmill makes to cut wood? Anyone?

    Oh I wont even start on that cabin. Thats on my bucket list but i dont know if i will ever get to it.
    cheers

    I been meaning to ask youif your "Born & raised in North East PA", was northeastern PA, as in Scranton, Carbondale?

    Or if it actually was in "North East, PA" as in zip code 16428?

    Just askin'.

    Aloha, Tony
