Firewood and Eider

October 15-16, 2011. This weekend Jody and I completed our last outside job, getting the last 1 1/2 cords of firewood bucked, split, hauled and stacked in the new woodshed. Here are a couple of photos of my driver, she’s a good worker!

This coming week I plan to start on Sam Devlin’s newly re-designed, trailerable sailboat “Eider”. If you stay posted you can see “Eider” come together from 4×8 sheets of high grade marine plywood and rough lumber that is milled right here on Puget Island. This lumber is as rough as it gets. The sawmill that mills the trees is very old, with two very large circular blades that can mill lumber up to 12 full inches wide and up to 20 feet long. When I pick this lumber up I have to run it through a 15″ planer and then cut it to size.
