Thank you for all of the nice feedback!

This was a fun project.

Nick:

Lumber prices are very low right now. So, no Northern expansion in the near future. 🤠

Charlie, we'll be up here waiting for you  ;)

Thanks Lenn.

Do you have a Sawmill in your World of Wonders? 🤠

I think I recall you doing some treasure hunting at an old Sawmill Sight.

Yep we`ve had a sawmill for about 30 years, it`s a old circle saw type.

Lumber Prices are way up this year Nick.

Might be time to open a Northern Sawmill.  :)

I bought a sawmill attachment for my chainsaw this winter. I've got two big walnuts and 4 or 5 oaks at my grandpa's that I want to try cutting down and milling. Thinking of making some real thick boards to save for future baseplates...  8)
