    All this wood was what Bruce got in payment from volunteering at the sawmill. The wide cherry has pink tones in it. I don’t know which piece is prettier. The poplar is so colorful and the grain is amazing. The single board is a branch from the cherry tree we took down last year. The side has a yellow tint to it. I cant wait to see the rest of it. We still have 18’ trunk that needs cutting down. He planed most of the afternoon yesterday and I sanded. Love the Super max. The three boards standing were ones I forgot were there.

      Can we fit it all in my truck, or do I need to send a freight company?

            Nice. Set those cherry boards out in the sun for a couple days and you will see a significant change to their color.

              Bill I used to do that with some baskets I made. That’s only part of it. We still have the rest cut down from the cherry drying under a canopy in the back yard 20 boards or so. He actually worked on this wood starting with the trunk delivered to the sawmill. People love it when I tell them that and it’s all local. They forget about the price tag and buy local. Don’t worry Scott, I’m laying patterns on and Bruce is cutting to size before his surgery.

                Just checked the stock outside, there are 30 boards, mostly 5/4 and about 10" wide. There are a few 3" thick and about 15" wide. I would say half poplar and half cherry which is mostly from our tree. As a birthday present, a bit late, the guys at the sawmill sent home a maple round 12" high and about 15" across for my bowl grinding. Sitting in a bag of sawdust so it doesn't dry too fast as it was just cut from the tree trunk that was cut last week.

                  I'm in the same boat. I get most of my sales surrounding demonstrations I do at the fairs. They've been cancelled. I do have a couple of orders from repeat customers, but that's all. Kind of a let down emotionally. My new toy money is on hold. Boooooo....

                  I like that PDF. This is something that Denny brought up on the phone last Friday as well. I told Denny that afternoon that the set screws would be something that I would not have thought of. We also talked about tightening the blade to much. I seem to have the tendency to over tighten the bottom clamp....
