re: Neatest thing you have built? - LSUfreak1459
Where do you live? I bought mine in Bordelonville. He slabs everything at 2" but I'm sure he wouldn't have a problem milling a 3" slab. He mainly has sinker cypress but I think he still has some 2" walnut slabs. Check out Rustic Living & Cypress on facebook. 36"+ isn't easy to find on one slab. Prob...

re: Neatest thing you have built? - LSUfreak1459
What kind of wood were you looking at and how big? I got 2- 2"slabs of sinker cypress for $500. 21-24" wide and 12' long. The slabs are also book matched. I got a few 2"x16" cypress I'll cut up for the trestle. Those were free but maybe $100-125 if I bought the wood for the trestle. ...

re: Do you think that rack restrictions would help Louisiana deer hunting? - LSUfreak1459
More doe tags are fine. It’s just balance we need to find of allowing people enough hunting time to enjoy it but also be able to manage the herd better. ...

re: Do you think that rack restrictions would help Louisiana deer hunting? - LSUfreak1459
[quote]implement seasons like they have in the midwest.[/quote] I think it's tough in the deep south to mimic what other parts of the country are doing. When I went hunting in Idaho a couple of years back, I realized how much big game they had. They have season for black bear, moose, elk, pronghorn...

re: How to go about selling milled lumber - LSUfreak1459
FB Martketplace is a good place. The guy I buy my hardwoods from sell it for around $3 BDFT rough cut. Unfortunately he is retiring so I have found someone else through FB and I see he has cherry for that price as well. ...

re: Chain Saw Recommendations - LSUfreak1459
I use to only buy stihl. But I bought a backpack blower a while back that I have been really impressed with. I’ll be switching to them due to price when equipment needs changing. My saws will always be stihl though. ...

re: Chain Saw Recommendations - LSUfreak1459
I have 2 stihls. A 310 and a 170. The 170 is great for branches and what not. 310 for bigger stuff. I prefer Stihl because there’s a stihl dealer not far from my house. And the places that sell husqvarana close to me don’t have a service center. I haven’t needed any work done that I couldn’t do but...

re: Bandsaw - LSUfreak1459
I got the G0153ANV. I was looking at the 14" G0555. The G0153 is on sale for $875 right now. The 14" is $655 but the riser block kit is $100. So for an extra $100 and change I decided to get get one step up. It also has a 2HP motor compared to the 1HP of the 14". ...

Bandsaw - LSUfreak1459
I have a grizzly 17" bandsaw coming in tomorrow. It's my first bandsaw so I'm wondering what blades to try. Right now I have a 1/2" wood slicer blade coming in for resawing and a 3/16th 4TPI skip tooth blade from highland woodworking. I'm thinking about picking up a couple of others to try. I'm curi...

re: Looking for some Oak or Cypress Beams/Posts - LSUfreak1459
[quote]Oak will rot... [/quote] White oak would be ok to use. Red oak sucks outdoors. That said, white oak is really heavy and would suck to work with a beam of that size. Cypress would be much easier to manhandle. If you lived closer to Opelousas I could point you in a couple of directions but th...

alaskan sawmills - LSUfreak1459
Anyone has one? I'm thinking about getting one setup and just looking for opinions on which saw (thinking a MS660) and which mill is good. I'm just tired of buying from guys with sawmills when people are giving away oaks and pines all day long on FB. I could also sell some slabs on the side for a li...
