more lumber

 Tonight lilli and jon watched me cut more of the tree into boards.  I cut the remainder of the 30 inch sections into 3/4" thick planks.  Then with the lessons learned there moved over to the 56 inch long one.  As this on is much heavier it did not want to slide.
 So I stuck a bunch of round pencils under it...  It worked well.  But the saw is getting bogged down and breaker going.  I moved from a 15 amp breaker labeled lights to a 20 amp breaker stating washer and dryer.
 It was still a lot of work.
Tomorrow we will finish cutting the board.  I really should be using a blade with less TPI for this.

I think they have the proper equipment to saw boards at Heston ;)
