We have taken a small detour to saw up some more boards for the roof and walls. The Pittman family has graciously allowed us to cut down some tulip poplar along the high tension right of way so we hauled the woodmizer over and have been making 2x6s and other boards that might be useful. Tulip poplar is a fairly soft, easy to cut wood that has a nice straight grain and few knots. The heart has a nice green tone. Here we can see Jenny operating the mill.
