One of the greatest tools I have is a Lucas Mill (Google it). It’s a portable mill which you build over the fallen log. We had a nice tree unfortunately come down on the property, a white stringy bark gum. It’s timber is not used that much anymore but in the old days it was used for flooring, furniture and some structural jobs etc. So I threw the Lucas Mill over it, slabbed it up, dried it on the mountain floor for a while, then built our family dinning room table out of it. We’ve had it for about 10 years now and love it. In fact I’m writing this story sitting at it right now.
