Our friend Gert owns and operates this amazing old saw mill. The mill itself was portable. It still sits atop its marvelous old iron wheels. Pulled by a team of buffalo, the mill and its steam engine used to travel from farm to farm, cutting wood for people. It came to rest in this old barn in the 1920s, and was converted over to electrical power in the 1950s. It is still used today custom cutting wood for tables and shelves, small construction projects etc. Gert cut the new shelves for our library. I’m hoping that he will be able to cut wood for a few replacement wood panels for the salon… and then maybe a dining table, new kitchen counter…..
