The barn board I purchased in Fenelon Falls is lovely to work with in the shop, and while cutting or sanding it my mind returns to the day I bought it at an old mill - Handley Lumber, a half block from the river that cuts through the center of town.
On the side of the mill appears a large hand-painted mural depicting activities related to the lumbering industry of long ago. And though I'm short (and getting a bit stout) I feel akin to a tall lanky fellow perched upon a floating log.
Perhaps I've been inhaling too much wood dust lately?
