Ant Village Journal #22: Huckleberries, Arrakis, and Building a Chainsaw Mill
The hot July weather has returned to Montana, and with it comes the Huckleberry season! The Ants and Gappers piled into Kai's truck and took a trip up the mountain to our favorite huckleberry patch to load up, slowly, on some of the world's tastiest berries. After getting lost in a good book for a whole day, I got back to work on the retaining walls of my house, getting the third one framed in. After a trip to Missoula with my neighbor Steve, in which we visited the public pool and I was able to get the casters I needed, I got to work on my own low cost version of a chainsaw mill. I made a mount for the saw out of a large metal plate, and then spent the next day fabricating and welding up a carriage to roll up and down the guide rail. I'm getting closer to bringing about my idea for the chainsaw mill, as well as being able to make my own lumber to complete my house.
