    What fun that was Only the second time doing that and it was more fun that the first time Well Larry and his brother handled the front end of the operation, sorting the logs, getting to and on the sawmill and loading in trucks. larrys wife Randi and I handled unloading what they cut and loaded. Wow Randi is a trooper, it was hard keeping up with her Once again they had Chris, Larrys sawyer, man he knows what he's doing and is a joy to watch I hope all slept well last night, I did
    Well here are some pics for you all to drool over

    Oh boy you guys must have slept well last night.

    That is sure some haul there. Wish i was there to see the cutting. Always wanted to see how thats done in real life rather than through the pics or U Tube video. Something to do with smelling the sawdust in the morning.

    So is Larry a woodworker now or a lumber yard? Dont think he will make much money at it cause he is always giving it away.

    Great to see the trees being recycled. How about some shots of some "select" grain boards. There must have been some "special" oohs or ahhs in that bunch.

    Still one of those special days Eh! Great to see thanks for posting guys.
    cheers

    Lots of "special" stuff Rob They just keep cuttin' the so fast, didn't have time to shoot the special stuff, l'll just say I bet Larry is STILL smiling And any day you can spend the day with a friend is a special day.
    Glenn, there was more cut after I left that don't have pics that was from one of the large crotch walnut can't wait to see what came out of that

    Probably no small pieces left over to turn a pen from!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!
