    well, your right john we both had sore backs because, one moving logs by hand to the saw is not easy, 2-32" oak, 2-32" s.maple all 10 to 12ftrs and every board gets handled tot he pile as well as cleaning up sawdust regularly so the sawyer didnt stumble. the smiles were there on some of it but the maple was depressing it had no curl but the pics are in toms camera so blame him for no pics yet.. maybe he can drop them in here

    It would have been great if it was loaded with curl! I wish you could have seen that maple I cut. The curl was crazy! I talked to him when he came to pick up the lumber. The log that I cut wasn't a log. It was a limb! He said the trunk was at least 5 feet across! He asked me if I could cut it. I told him if he quartered it and delivered it to the mill! He said he's been looking for a chainsaw big enough to cut it.

    Did you get any nice crotches in this load?

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