for me it has to be the band mill i love being able to take a 4000 lb log and slice it up with the push of a hand.. and be the first one on the planet to see the treasurs that are within a particular tree..


when you cut a tree you get booked matched slabs and sometimes if your lucky you will get some book matched slabs that have animal faces on them... so far i have cut thousands of slabs but only 4 have produced animal faces so far!! i have a big image of a wooly mammoth and a egyptian cat another big image---- and a smaller chiwawa image --and another smaller dog like image.... and i have another big image of a big firery arrow. those are the most unique pieces that i've cut so far.

I like playing with my chain saw the most. We had a tree problem when we moved in. Seven broken down trees that were dead or dying. That was a lot of fun. This year I've had nothing to cut! ! guess I'll get it out to clean and sharpen.

thats my second favorite tool you can slab wood with a chain saw but it's like 10 times more work and wastes a lot of good wood--- but it's a fun tool!!! it's a must for me can't get the trees to put on the mill without the chain saw..

Since I am out of town 90 percent of the time. I take both items with me. Never know when the urge to have an ice cream/beer float is going to hit.

Not too exciting, but I have to second the cordless drill. I'm putting together another 5 gallon self watering planter today and using the heck out of it.

In the kitchen, I like the microplane. It is sooo sharp.

Bailing wire and duced tape. But I guess you would have to be a Red neck to understand that.
