Going to start framing another room later today and then pickup the oak that I took to a mill to have lumber made. (It's in an earlier post)Excited to see what mother nature has done with them.

I want to see the milled lumber!





I had to stop myself from saying I want to see your wood. Guess that is fitting with the title of this thread

Ha ha!
It was late by the time I got it home. Going through some of it there looks to be some good samples of flat and quarter sawn boards. Here is s teaser. It was raining so some of the grain was easy to see in spots.

That is **** nice! When you have lumber milled out of trees it makes everyone you loose an opportunity for something great not a burden that has to be dealt with.

When you have lumber milled out of trees it makes everyone you loose (lightning struck, diseased, wind fallen, in an inopportune spot) an opportunity for something great (lumber for furniture, wood turning, projects) not a burden that has to be dealt with (cut up and removed or burned).

Still no savvy?

Harr! Savvy! "Lose," not "loose."

Lumber looks great. Love the grain.

Here is the results from yesterday. The lumber was wet and the sawdust had to be removed with a wire brush, some of it had already molded. I should have had the stickers made but did not do it took the day to get it from trailer to being stacked. I still have the mantle piece to place and weight down. Shown are some samples of what the grain looks like on the lot.

Goliad county. Everett Moritz was the sawer. Every thing was cut the same 1 1/4" thick except the mantle piece with is about 5" thick. I weighted the later with a couple of pieces of rail road track.
