A New Venture

For decades I wanted to run a small newspaper; That’s what gave rise to the Quill & Blade. Lately I’ve been trying to change my day work from painting things to running a sawmill. It involves setting up equipment and of course, a learning curve to produce lumber from logs.

It’s rewarding work, but also physically demanding. The physical exhaustion leads to mental exhaustion, so the paper has regrettably been put on hold. that’s not permanent. below are pictures of lumber I’ve been making.
