Cherry Floor: Phase Two

For reference, this is how my floor started. (I thought I’d posted these photos, but I guess I not.) This is the day Keith came and picked up the logs to take to the sawmill. Phase One:

For phase two, Keith milled the logs into lumber and dried them in the kiln. Saturday we went to pick up the lumber and transported it to the Hicksville Planing Mill where they’ll make the lumber into floorboards.
