Making Lumber at my Farm

I think it’s so wonderful when people have interesting and practical hobbies, especially when they enjoy sharing them. Dominick Arena, who works at my farm, has a keen interest in lumbering and he is the proud owner of a fabulous sawmill, manufactured by Wood-Mizer.  Dominick was looking for a new hobby and lumbering seemed like a good idea because he has plans to construct a building. Dominick has land in the Adirondacks of New York State, where he taps his maple trees and makes syrup every spring. He needs a new sugar shack and wants to make it literally from scratch. He acquired his sawmill last June and has been practicing his lumbering skills. It’s really a fascinating process!
