mallardman, what is are you doing with the logs.

Are they going to be turned into 2x's and sent down to me for housing, or are they for some other purpose?

ACE, the lumber we cut is all 1". We use only poplar(aspen) and jackpine. The majority of our product is used as framing for furniture. Our plant also produces particle board out of the waste from the mill and i've heard rumors that management is looking to get into producing OSB, or Oriented Strand Board. So, one day you may get some of our OSB but lumber probably not...

unless your one of those crooked contractors that cut corners wherever they can to make some more $$ :laughing: "umm....of course thats a 2x4 wall!!" j/k!

The only reason he has not is because there is no such thing as a cliff in eastern MB :laughing:

There is basically 4 areas to work in MB: Farming, forestry, Minerals and Govt employee.
There is something like a 1 receiving the Govt dole out of $ to 2.2 paying into it in MB according to some of my friends in MB. At least MM77 is a worker :yes: VS a welfare receipient like so many are.

I like the pics, I work in forestry in N.C. but our mills look alot different. Mostly pine cut tree legnth or 18'. The rest is oak, popular, and gum. I live about 20 miles from an International Paper pulp mill.

I was watchin the history channel one night & there was a program called saw mill tech--bitchin. It showed computer programs that would diagram that specific log (that just rolled up) in seconds and it would give the pattern of cut which would yeild the most lumber from that log. in all sizes too. 2x4, 2x6, 2x8, 2x12. Really quite cool. I think I have shown you all what type of equipment I use at work. Right? PS2, Portable DVD player, computer... you name it, and i could sneak it into work. except duck calls--I have neighbors.

Unfortunately we have a parasite problem up here too. It makes me so :pissed: when i think of all the able bodied people attatched to the government teat because thier to lazy to go out and find a job. I'll leave my comments on welfare recipents there because if i go into more detail, It may get an R rating! :toofunny:


mallardhunter wrote: :eek: Got enough wood.


That may look like alot of wood, but that is only enough logs for about 20 working days. Our mill cuts close to 50 cords of wood a day. We produce roughly 5.5 million board feet of finished lumber a year.
