Picture of the Day
October 8, 2023

9:40 am, i'm mixing mud in a bucket to drywall the
shop when bill calls to ask me up to give him a hand
at 10:30. i'd never seen a sawmill in action, had to pay
attention as i was there to pull the fresh cut boards out
before the roving blade began its return trip. we pared
this log down then rolled a fresh one in its place. the
springed levers lower left are called dogs--they act as
comealongs to position the piece, then to hold it firm you
reef on the handle, sink teeth into bark, a deep bite.
