    Seen while going to the Doctor's Office

    Just inside of Shelby County, OH..along St Rt 47...

    The newest of the Amish Sawmills in the area...they haven't even sided the NEW house, yet. Seems sawing logs to provide lumber for their pallet business is booming. They had a bit of trouble with one log...

    May have been too big for the saw blade they were using....two cuts, haul it outside, wedges and hammer to finish the split?
    Next farm down the road takes the rough sawn lumber, and builds pallets by the flatbed trailer load....

    It's a funny thing, is there something about fundamentalists and sawing up poplar for pallets? I visited once a similar saw-mill doing similar work in a similarly fundamentalist community.

    View it as a "Cash Crop"? This same group has at least 4 other sawmills within a 10 mile radius....each one has another farm next door to build the pallets.
