Greetings from the Pennsylvania Wilds
I have been "ghosting" these files for a while, and finally decided to join in the fun. Got back into serious wood working because my older son decided to build a new house and do the interior finish work himself. Decided NOT to do the log cabin thing, but wanted T & G Knotty Pine paneling in the main portion of the house. We began with decking, skidding, loading and hauling White Pine to a local mill for sawing and kiln drying. At this point (8 years into the project) we have processed 11,000 bd.ft. of paneling and all but the ceiling in the clear story (25 ft. peak) has been installed. Along the way have been numerous side tracks including making cherry wainscot and trim for the "Pool Room". Those logs were actually cut when clearing the lot for the house. We have taken over the two stall garage and turned it into a decent wood shop with a Belsaw planer - molder, RAS, table saw, 6" jointer, two router tables, one of which has a power feeder, 22 - 44 drum sander, band saw, plumbed in dust collection system, Drill press / mortise, and a lot of hand tools. Over the years, we have been side tracked on other projects for family and friends. I will try to post a few items later. Thanks for allowing me to join. Hopefully I can contribute to the discussions.
