SESSION 2: SAWING LOGS INTO LUMBER - Watch Leo Boutin, who has been sawing lumber for the farm for 15 years, saw logs from several different tree species to reveal bold patterns in each board’s grain. Marshall and Dana will demonstrate how to stack a “flitch,” a whole, unedged log. Contact Dana ahead of time if you’d like Leo to custom cut some lumber for you! This program is weather dependent.
