Chuck our 16 ft 2x6 are around 28 dollars a piece so I am happy to have a mill and be able to make it myself. And the logs were a little bonus from the company I work for so time and blades and gas and I will probably get about 8k worth of wood after I get it milled.

You can't get the quality of wood in a store that you can mill yourself if you have a good noledge of sawing lumber. I always payed attention to the people I worked with in the past and it has payed off in my life.

No I have a bit of 1x8 to go to my boss for board and batten and need to finish up the camp. I am going to build a couple of smaller camps on my property over the next couple of years to help with my income in the future as I can rent them out by the week in the summer for good money. Just finish up 4k ft of 1x6 ceader for tg should be able to dress it in July as the logs have been cut for about 10 years the color is nice in aged white ceader as far as I'm concerned.

I figured I have about 6k board ft cut and piled only 6k more and it will be done.

So is it better to cut dry logs into studs or cut green and dry after cutting?i would imagine there would be more problems with the lumber warping if cut from green logs and dried later?
also is it harder on the blades/mill cutting dry wood as opposed to green?

Real nice bunch of lumber there,and a lot of work.

most trees have some sort of tension in them from the growing process. So dry or green once sawn into lumber , dependent on how much tension is in the log, some of that tension is released and that is what cause some lumber to warp more than others. Plus a log you think is dry, never really is 100% dry.

Boco dry spruce is hard to saw especially the nots. As squash said timber bind is always in logs but can be released by sawing if you are watching for it in the sawing process. I will try and get a few pictures today to show the amount of bend when sawing. This stuff has been pretty good so far only had one bad log that was junk. The 16 ft 2x6 looked like a recurve bow lol.

Took a few pics of the movement of the wood when sawing. This is how much they moved on their own. [Linked Image]

First one is end of cant where it moved, second is the other end and the 3 is a cant that is straight after sawing.

Beautiful looking table GB.
So the reason the boards dont line up is because of the stress released when sawn SW?

That is correct boco that's where they went to as the saw was cutting usually starts too move when you are about a foot down the log with the cut. Other times it is vertical movement. Sometimes it will jam the saw if the pressure is forcing down into the log. Cool to see how wood moves in the sawing process.

Should put more spacers between the wood, the cedar is good as spacers for spruce. Never use the same species as spacers due to mold between the wood if the same.
OHIO
only handle it once
place on a pallet to move then strap down
Good work
