Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Hand Milled Timber Bench...

6:00 pm - 60 degrees - mostly cloudy...

Last weekend Tony got out his Alaskan Chainsaw Mill and started cutting on a storm damaged Douglas Fir tree {click here}.  He continued to work on that same tree all week, milling out several live edge and slab style benches and is getting pretty good at it.  The benches look great! 

Here are some pictures of what he’s done...


4' and 5' unfinished Douglas Fir slab benches

the Alaskan Chainsaw Mill creates a lot of sawdust 

Start to finish... one storm damaged Douglas fir tree
 turns into a 10' unfinished Douglas fir slab bench.
