    Well for the price it seems hard to do bad!!! Hopefully the stuff that comes out the other end of the sawmill looks as good as it seems it might, in which case I'd say you did really good!!

    Looks like quite a haul from here. Looking forward to seeing what you find when you open up those logs.

    Hey there Jim! Looks like work from here. Got your storage area lined up and ready to keep those boards dry? Good to see you and hope mom and baby are doing well.

    Me thinks you need to get ol gray beared involved in this given all his experience in determining what comes out of a log and which way is best to cut it.

    Good haul there Jim i dont see how you could go wrong, even as firewood that would be dirt cheap price you paid.

    Bet you could sell a few slabs and get your money back and still have plenty for yourself and of course dont forget the old Dad tax.
    cheers
