    I thought I would create a thread about my adventures (and misadventures) with my band mill. I have a Vallee Green Monster with a 24 hp Honda engine that can cut a 35” wide log 21’ long. My milling tends to go in spurts as I need material for projects or decide I need to tackle my pile of logs.

    Today I needed some cedar posts for a project so I got those knocked out. I also milled some elm and stacked and stickered some walnut I milled a couple of weeks ago.

    A few pictures that I took.

    The slab pile has been growing and I needed it out of the way. I advertised on Marketplace but had no takers. However, I did find someone at work who burns wood and would take them. I also had a box of woodworking scraps I gave him for kindling.

    Picked up a sharpener for my bandsaw today. At $30 a pop for new blades this should save some money.

    The (ex) wife is still in Lexington, the wood is stacked in an abandoned house on the property where I have my sawmill.

    I was able to sell the last pile for $30, I had no takers this time. Rather than put them on the burn pile I gave them to Paul. He did give me some mustard and turnip greens though.

    I did some tree work and clean up for a friend of mine yesterday. She told me I could have whatever logs I wanted, ended up bringing some cherry home. It had been down for a while so I was a bit concerned about how solid it would be. After milling it up I will be going back to get the rest. I milled it all 5/4.

    Milled up the rest of my cherry and then some cedar that I am going to use for decking on a footbridge. I ended up finishing in the dark so I do not have a picture of all the cedar I milled.
