I literally came into a windfall of white pine. This 28" tree came down across my coral in a bit of a tornado that swep thru. I didn't appreciate the amount of work it create but I took it to a fellow who does custom sawing and got some very nice lumber. It is stacked and stickered in my green house and hay loft.

Plenty of good uses for that crofter, and maybe not for bee boxes. (y)
What thickness was it milled to?

Not quite 1 1/16" Usually I plane to 7/8" for boxes and the boards come out with very few planer misses. Taken down to 3/4 they are spotless. Took him an hour and a half and cost 175 of our little Canadian Dollars. Got a few 16" like the one pictured, a few 14" then rest 8 and 12

Really dont need a whole lot more equipment but do want to make a few more of the Dadant depth boxes. I keep saying that I am getting too old for this foolishness!

Well, eliminate the guy who works the tree - the lumber jack guy.
Whoever left is crofter.
Certainly, crofter is the most giddy of the two also - about his windfall.
Bingo!

Elementary, Whatson. LOL

I be the little feller. In the picture below we got to joking about pine boards for making coffins and I whipped out my tape and started measuring him up! He is about 6'4"

I told him the joke about some big fellow of whom it was said that if someone kicked the sh_ _ out of him, that they could bury him in a shoe box! I am glad he has a good sense of humor!

I love your puns. "Lumber really came down"... "a windfall"...
