Neighbor Gary McMasters and his crew saw lumber on his vintage circular sawmill earlier this week. Gary custom saws for folks in and around Grays Chapel, North Carolina. Monday, they were sawing poplar for a local farmer for use as a floor in his barn loft. Scenes like this take me back to my childhood, when my Grandfather and my uncle ran a sawmill business with a mill very much like the one Gary uses.
