The Sawmill has finally reached a point where I can see what I need to do for the mill yard, and what needs tidying up that I didn't notice whilst building but shows up in pictures.
First a general shot of the building and machinery.

Just such a fantastic build. You have built one heck of a sawmill Grant. :notworthy: :notworthy:
I have too say it's rivals Rik's by a short head...
Super photos too. :thumbright:

Unfortunately the post put itself on the forum before I'd finished it. So to carry on, a general view of the area for the yard.

Thanks for the kind replies folks they are appreciated.
Made up a stack of timber to be air dried in the yard, probably another two to go, there's a lot of sawdust in one of these. I worked out there would be
38.72 metres of oregon approx. 4x10mm in this one stack if I'd used real lengths of timber. Shall stain the ends black and grey the top a bit I think.

Some and some perhaps? i.e one freshly cut stack and a couple that have been out a while?

Yes Tom, if your referring to the stuff in the mill itself. The process equates to watching grass grow, a syringe, PVA glue, water and detergent, and a good aim. Similar to ballasting HO track only even more boring!. I've thrown loose handfulls under the benches and saws as there is a hollow under them which would be where the belting and shafting is. Ours were often in trenches dug under the floors.
