I just returned from my morning adventure, roaming about a new playground. If your idea of a playground is a big, weird lot in the middle of industrial wasteland punctuated by piles of random logs, lumber and a doggie that wants you to throw the stick just one more time, then we're on the same page. Green Waste Recycle Yard combines tree care/removal with lumber milling in a most fantastical way. It's a great alternative to reclaimed lumber if you're not into the rustic "my saw just hit a 40 year old nail" kind of thing.
I picked up some redwood pieces I'll be incorporating into stepping stones (or sticks?) and had a chance to wander around amidst the tractor fumes and steaming mulch piles. Can't wait to dream up some projects that will give me an excuse to go back. I had to check myself for drool while eyeing the giant, very dangerous milling tools, including the bandsaw of whose blades are shown above.
