The guy with the portable sawmill is biting at the bit to start. But I haven't shot my deer yet My brother saw a nice buck in my dads field next door last night. atleast an 8 he said. Gonna post pics soon where i have cut the logs from. Now the dreaded peeling of the d-logs will start. I saw a log peeler disc that goes on an electric grinder - just wondering if anybody has tried it? it's 400 bucks worth it or not?

Quote from: Don_P on November 25, 2012, 06:16:00 PMToo irregular for a power planer even with the front shoe completely removed. Planers hate green wood as well. Drawknife, spud or slick, felling or broad axe and lots of elbow grease. If you are buddies with a stationary mill they might toss them in the debarker for you but that takes some of the character away and requires drawknifing to clean up the damage. You would do well to have a power planer to run down the center bottom of the logs when stacking, they will dry with convex faces, plowing a relief on the bottom will allow them to stack on the outer edges rather than teetering on rounded faces. I have the chainsaw disc for the grinder that does a good job for carving, knots and fitup, only use it on a grinder with a paddle switch. My wife dropped it in a workbasket while up in the air one time with a on off switch grinder, it chased her all over the place.
