As I reported in my blog of June 11th, 2013 Webmaster Roger Thornburn and I plus our wives spent a wonderful day at Sturgeon’s Mill near Sebastapol. These are pics that Roger (mostly) and I took that day.
Shires taking a log to the mill
Chains used to bring log to saw
Close-up of log being sawed ….. before the days of OSHA
Machine used to rip the planks into 2 by 4’s etc. The levers in the foreground set the machine to cut the various sizes.
The planer at work.
A nice 12” by 12”
