This might better belong in wood supply or doing more with what you have. But here goes it.
Back in the day when I was a full time sawmiller I found out the hard way that the profit was in the waste. The lumber just paid the expense and a bit for improvements then a few crumbs for me.
Never forgetting that I like to keep applying that. So here is my spuding operation.
I save on my saw blades, make better slab wood fuel, get a bark by product that would just go up in flames and get a work out at the mill gym.
I should find another Kemp shredder or make one that I could use to mulch the bark. A debarker would be nice but it would use up a lot of fuels and expensive to set up. Good idea to put everything to work in your wood lot.
Hoofed some lumber and slab wood over to Dad today.
Oh, I forgot sawdust for the bucket throne.
Remember, if the the ladies don’t find ya handsome at least let them find ya cheap !
