My wife and I wanted to tear down an old 16x12 shed that's seen better days, and putting up a screen house in it's place. I'm now seriously considering a cheap beam maker for a chainsaw and cutting my own posts from the trees on our property.
They don't call it rough cut for nothing...That is a very good idea. I’d like to do the same - but I’m not sure how agile I’d be using those things. Seems like it takes some meaningful practice.
But then again - I’ve got time and plenty of trees.
