Log to lumber

Spread the love

So with the help of our neighbor Ed and his son Brian we where able to bring up one of the last pine logs (only one left).

First step is to lob off the sides and turn a round peg square.

This left me with a 7 1/4 x 7 1/4 post. From that I cut it into 1 1/2 inch thick slabs. Then using our circular saw took the slabs and turned them into 2x4s.

I’ll be using these to make the frame of the greenhouse. Which will be 20’x15’… I should be able to get the rest of the base framing lumber from the last pine log that’s down. After that I will needed to start cutting down more of the pines.

That’s it for now. Cheers.
