Goodwill Sawmilling Trip

My Son Marty and I will leave tomorrow for Rusk, Texas on a a Goodwill sawing trip with no pay.

Lightning struck a young family's home and it burned to the ground. They had very little insurance, and there are 4 children age 10 and below.

We will be sawing framing lumber so that they can rebuild.

Have a safe trip. That's a great thing you're doing. And a great Christmas present for the family. Reps sent.

We are back home with a very successful sawing trip under our belt. We began sawing Monday morning and finished Thursday about 3:00 PM. We sawed all of the framing lumber (8965 board feet) to build this family's new home.

There were a total of six of us working. Three from Mississippi, one from Oklahoma, and two from Texas.

Great show. What saw equipment was used? Was the lumber left rough sawn or was it run through the planer?

I have a Wood-Mizer LT40 SuperHydraulic sawmill. knotholesawmill.com

The lumber will be air dried and no planing will be necessary.
