    Thats beautiful.
    Drying out here after another round of rain last night, but at least we had two and a half days off from the rain.

    Thats a lot of wood.
    Milling sure sounds like a lot of fun. I just put the red oak siding on the east side of my woodshed, all milled from one scrounged log.
    Thanks @Sawyer Rob :cheers:.

    But I liked seeing all your square ended firewood. Now they're all going to be triangles :(.

    5 more buckets on the pile today and another one of the trees damaged in the storm down and bucked up.
    The weather was great up here today.

    Looks like that tree didn't fall in the direction you had your notch?

    Pulled it right where I asked it to go, 130 degrees off the natural lean, couldn't have went better. If it would have fallen within 30 degrees to the left anywhere I would have been happy.

    Not sure that is a good thing. 2nd highest rainfall in 125 years on a site I was reading.

    I took 10 of these logs down to the saw mill just to see what I could get. About 3/4 of a cord $100, a lot less work. IMG_20190930_125256571_HDR.jpg

    Did they take them for pulp, so can you toss anything on the trailer and get the same, that wouldn't be bad. I guess if you have extra wood you don't want to mess with, or it will rot sitting, then it works for that too.

    He is going to saw them, has plenty of oak right now so he really doesn't need it. I think he only took it because he is my cousin. LOL

    Moved nearly 2 cords today to dry storage under our deck, which is in close proximity to the woodstove. I thought I was three years ahead, might be even farther than that! I never thought I'd ever say it - but we might have too much firewood.

    This is what we removed:

    This is what is in place to burn this season:

    Most is a mix of Ash and Cherry, the rest, perhaps 25% is Northern Red Oak two years seasoned. There is still plenty to pull from, just didn't have enough room. This ought to last us until late January, then we will need to pull more a little at a time.

    Got lots of kindling prepared too:

    And everything is within a few steps away:
    [​IMG]

    Some might ask why so much kindling. Well, our old Dutchwest stove doesn't have long burn time like more modern ones, but despite that it does burn very efficiently and unless it is bitter cold outside, there is no need to run the stove 24/7. On the weekends we burn constantly, because we are home. During the work week, we are away for an average of 12 hours at a time, so we light a cold stove every afternoon during the winter weeks.
