Much of the lumber used here at the shop is from my wood lot and milled right here. The lot is large enough that good healthy trees are not used. It's enough trouble just to keep up with storm damage and blow downs. This keeps me well supplied without harming healthy trees. Thought I'd throw that in for you "green" folks. After milling, the boards go into a drying shed where they are graded and stacked. It takes at least one year to air dry 1 inch thick lumber. The woodlot supplies Red and White oak, soft and hard Maple, Hickory, Black Walnut, Basswood, Poplar, Black Cherry and White ash.
