We recently came across aerial photos of our neighborhood from 1936. We've had a blast pouring over them, seeing how the fields and even the roads have changed over time. Of special interest to us, of course, are the trees. We love seeing the empty patches in 1936 filling in with leafy green oaks, maples and firs.

See for yourself - use the slider to switch back and forth between then and now. (It may take a minute or two to load.)

Last week, Bill Wessinger of Wessinger Woodworks stopped by the mill to pick up some green Oregon White Oak bending lumber.  Bill has been buying wood from us since 2011, and he makes furniture and also dabbles in boat building.  Combining these two passions of his, he has also been making some amazing wood sculptures.  The pictures speak for themselves.  You can check out Bill's instagram page for lots more amazing pictures of his work.
