    Much progress being made since I last checked in the trusses are all made up and we started stranding up posts today. I was gifted a 100+ year old pine that I managed to get all the 2x6s for the girts and purlins from. Trusses under the tractor shed for safe keeping. Posts starting to go up...

    First tree fell today.

    Formed up a new slab two weekends ago now waiting on concrete hopefully this Thursday. And then the first tree fell today. I'll attempt to keep this updated but I tend to get sidetracked easily so no promises.

    Building a new shop, slab question

    I am tearing down my current cobbled together scrap heap and I have an idea for the slab I wanted to ask opinions on.

    4 year project finally up and running

It cuts amazingly well I'm super happy with it so far. Only have 10 foot of track built right now so I'm limited to 6' boards but as soon as I can get...
