  1. Curious what your thoughts are on the affordability of making your own trim and baseboards out of trees that you mill yourself. Is there a business model there for home remodelers?

    1. Could be. Just depends on how much your time is worth. If you’re already milling lumber, then yes. A molder would quickly pay for itself especially if you’re looking to make higher end trim.

  2. The planer that you changed the head to a spiral, was it a lobo 20″?????
    I have a 20″ Lobo and am looking to change the straight cutter to spiral.
    Mine is built in 1993.

  3. Hi Matt. I’ve been watching for a while. I like your approach to woodworking and especially like your urban logging efforts to rescue wood that would otherwise get turned into firewood or just left to rot. I think my favorite project of yours was the Something From Nothing box, where you welcomed your child home and then made something. Nice.
    My main question: You’ve been slabbing tree trunks for quite a while. Do you find yourself wondering what the slabs would look like from trees you see when you’re driving around?
