Last year uncle and I built our own horizontal band mill on the cheap.
Yesterday, he saw a power line crew cut down a 24" or so oak and asked
them if he could have it. They said sure.
So off he goes in his little 2wd toyota pickup, stops at my place to
get a chainsaw and brings back 18 foot of tree in 6 foot sections.
The tree was up hill, he parked down hill and used a cant hook to roll
it up some 4x4's (cut from my red pines) into his truck and over to my
place where the saw sits.
Today, we turned it into 5/4 oak boards.
Free wood is always a gloat. (unless it has termites :( )
