Please feel free to copy. If you want any pointers let me know, those are last years the new born to this year have different ears and tails to improve the breed!

Safeasouses now.     Thought I'd update to show that some people do listen to advice occasionally!  

And then see progress from tree (2x larch, which had both blown), to sawmill, to stakes, to plantation. In 400 years someone will be able to cut more stakes out of the oak trees I'm planting now!

Bandsaw isn't mine, sadly, Mike.   At the moment I have to get those 8ft lengths down to my friend 5 miles away who has the woodmizer.  I'm still astounded when beautiful square-cut timber comes back in exchange for big hunks of knobbly roundwood.   

I would LOVE to have one of my own (hence a few questions on the subject on here in fact), and can just about justify it: One biggish building project and it's paid for itself through not buying timber-yard wood.  (The trouble is it becomes a bit circular.  If it pays for itself by cutting the timber for it's own shed, that doesn't really count does it!?)
