This evening I started sawing a gnarly little red oak log that I need to do something special with, I used the Woodmizer LX 150, Kubota MX 5400, and The Stihl MS 261. This Tree was growing right in front of where our dream garage is going to be built.

It occurs to me that if you would have cut 1 1/2 inch boards, how cool would a solid red oak door to the building be?

Hey Mike - I watched a few of your videos over the last few years but really started tuning in to your channel religiously lately. I do have one question for you. How do you keep your lumber from getting bluing stripes where the stickers lay. I don’t have the issue with pine, but tend to have it with oak. Usually they come out after planing, but I would still like to perfect this and avoid it all together if possible. Thanks!

Hey Mike, catching up on the videos so I'm a little late on this. Not sure if your AC has been fixed, but if it's freezing up and there's no leak. It may be the relay. If it has a delay, it can allow to much time before the fan cuts on. Had an old school hvac guy fix mine. New guys just wanted to put in a new unit. 125 bucks vs thousands.

Howdy Morgans, hate to hear about your A/C going out in the middle of a heat wave.....if you only had a swimming pool Melissa and Hunter could have cooled off in whilst waiting for the repair man. Hey Mike you high stumped the oak? If the stump could remain outside your man door perhaps your wood carver buddy could carve it into an animal of your choice to greet everybody. My suggestion for the animal greeter would be a Bald Bear saying Howdy but that's just me. Have A Day! ;~)

A couple of videos back, you were mentioning the slabs. If you put pex piping in the concrete floor of your new garage/gym, and install a Central Boiler (non-pressurized) outdoor wood furnace, you could burn those slabs and keep the whole thing a perfect temperature in the winter, plus heat the pool water in spring and fall! Make use of those renewable resources!

Well i moved down here to NC from Northern PA 35 yrs ago and you never really get use to 95 degrees and humidity at 90% . Its just stay inside or go out for shorter periods of time to get things do e. But I had heat stroke about 10 yrs ago. And every since.its alot harder for me to handle the heat. I feel like I'm burning up if out for long.skin has a burning sensation when im in direct sunlight. . So I do my best to stay well hydrated when I no im going out and rehydrate when I return .

Yeah good luck with your air issue. I just went through that myself a week ago. Was without it for 3 days .he came to efforts day it was out put freon in it. Had to call him the next day because it wasn't working again. He came and finally realized it had a leak in the copper tube and it was a big issue because the leak was back behind the brick.so he said well we have 3 choices. Break out the brick and soder the leak . Cut a hole in the sheet rock and soder the leak. Or run all new copper up the outside 0f the home up through the roof soffit and over to were the pipe is that he would cut off to install the new line. . So went with the quickest easy method and ran the new line outside the brick and within 45 minutes I had the coldest air ive ever had. Thank god because it was just before this hot 90's temperatures started . But it was a couple of miserable nights of 80 degrees in the house still. Alot of fans running everywhere. So I pray your air man got yall straightened out that night he was coming. I have a feeling its been a slow leak since I moved in here 5 yrs ago. He said yeah the dumbass sheet rock guys, plumbers and electricians don't care what they do to our lines in the walls . They shoot there nails right through our lines alot. .

It's been hot here in the Sierra Nevada foothills, but it's dry here, so we can get by with a swamp cooler; no worries about broken AC. But then Monday night the storage tank on the well broke open. No water! No water = no swamp. Called my good friend Marvin Tuesday morning and he had a new 250 gal tank installed and the water back on by Thursday noon. Cool again in the house.

Mike, question: When I see guys planking logs with a chain saw mill, they have to put wedges into the cut so the weight of the wood won’t pinch the saw blade. Why don’t you have to do that with the bandsaw mill? In fact you make multiple boards without having to use wedges. Thanks George

One idea for the red oak would be be make a hat/coat rack or such in the area of the door. You could put a small plaque on it with the history. Oh, nice job on the tree felling. Perfect in my mind.

I have my wood splitter under a roof with light normally, but when I use it in other places I use one of them "better quality" quick rise party tents to give me shelter from sun and rain. If it's windy I put up a wall or two. Also uses this tent when I'm doing maintenance, woodwork- or painting outside.
