Dave.

I love the diorama, beautiful job on the weathering and landscape.
I love the fact that you milled you own lumber.

Have you tried ripping hemlock?
It has a straight grain and it's not too hard.
I was thinking they would be good tie and bridge material.
The slivers sting like heck though.



Si.

I built a sled for my band saw and have been experimenting with various branches.

I square up the material and run it through like a small saw mill.
The fence is on the opposite side and set to the thickness I want to rip.

The limiting factor, is the length of the material maxes out at 6 inches.
Or I could build a longer sled I guess.
