I'm thinking a patio bar and long countertop out of mesquite wood
I guess I should have checked my spelling with spellcheck, oh wait, wench is spelt correctly, but at any rate, what ever I get here I deserve, wench = WINCH. Hope your healing process continues, I've had to duck a rolling pin from time to time. Been married for 39 years now, just had our anniversary, so things are good at the moment.

Oh ok, napping is a good thing, just not while driving or running the sawmill. He he.
Thank you Allen for your contribution of planing slabs of wood, it will come in handy.
Yes, the wench did not work quite as well as the winch did, and the remote would not work on the wench at all, but does work on the winch quite well. Oh your avatar is sideways my Assistant1111= John.
Thank you for the kind words Allen. I would love to see someone here build my sawmill. Even make improvements to the design for others to benefit from. I am amazed at the response I'm receiving from having posted my sawmill design here. There is so much interest in every aspect of building and creating here, that I have found a home. Instructables is truely a wonderful site to share knowledge.
Yea, I have a new spare wench that came with a remote control. It will be a simple matter to set it up with a rheostat and the correct sprockets. That way I can speed the rolling frame up on return for another cut and slow it down for cutting.
Thank you 1111, yes it took much time and determination, I think it to be well worth the effort, but now the real work begins, those future creations you mentioned. Fun times ahead.
That was my thought before I built the sawmill. Slabs of wood were beyond my reach before, now I can cut any type wood I want and build something wonderful.
Thanks Josh, I will be adding steps to this post along with photos within them in order as the build progressed.
Thanks JmsDwh, I have about 70 logs to cut up into slabs averaging 24" in diameter and one I need to look at today an old oak that a storm carrying high winds knocked down recently, measuring 45' tall and 36" in diameter. So I'm going to get a work out, along with the sawmill.
I will accomplish this, just need the time. Thanks for the link, Jeff.

Just wanted to suggest something besides a metal roof, it all looks really good, but a white rubber roof would work very well for this project. Most travel trailers now days use them, they are very light weight, easy to install, durable, does not absorb heat like a metal roof would and cost effective. There are several manufacturers for this type roof GAF being one. Just my two cents.
