OK, wondering what a CCC is, but certain its nothing bad.

I used a Wagner Control Pro 150 sprayer, ordered from Home Depot, was planning on hand painting, so glad I got this sprayer, showed up 2 days before I departed.
Another one of those good investments. Spent about 1 hour painting after I got it going.

CCC=Civilian Conservation Corps, FDR era 1933-42; the CCC built much of the 'traditional' Nat Park improvements. Glorious bull work that can still be seen today.
Iirc PBS has played a documentary profiling it from time to time. Like the WWII vets, the Greatest Generation, most CCC participants are now gone.

OK, yes, very familiar with their work, seen loads of it.
Thank you for the compliment.

OK, took that old slabbed snag and have built a large serving table, this is to go across one end of the log shelter. Designed for cooling and serving on, while the picnic table will be used for eating. So the large space consuming items are out of the way.

The table is 11 feet long, its notched for the rear log uprights, we did a dry run last visit.

With glue and lots of biscuits, made the large table our of pieces.

Took my branding iron and burned in the brand. I coated the top in a product called "Stone Coat", did the clear stuff, first coat down. It was spread with a 1/8" notched trowel and self leveled. I will probably have to put one more coat on it yet.

Gets installed in mid August

Nice. What kind of wood is that? The drip feed on the mill is interesting, haven't tried that.

Nice!

I just cut 3, 10"x12"x 10' logs in half length wise to use as steps with my Echo 330T. About 2 hours each... freehand. Of course not nearly as nice of cuts as you got there but sufficient for steps. The cut marks I call, "no slip texture!"

Paulz, its a Stihl 056AV, the drip feed has a small little valve, close it when done. Its ponderosa pine, each slab took probably 5 minutes max, it was a ripping chain, made for cutting with grain.

That is just a typical Alaskan saw mill as its generically called. Amazon has them, about $150 or so, no match for your redwoods though.

I borrowed a neighbor's Granberg, bought a ripping chain for my Husky 70cc and did some redwood. What it was great for was squaring a log so it would fit the 16" throat of my small bandsaw mill. After that, the bandsaw was faster and less kerf for the many 20+ footers I milled for my deck.

I should probably get one, handy. His didn't have the drip feed.

OK, headed back over Friday, be there the full following week. Have some projects, nothing big this time. Bunch of "small" as I call them.

Because of the extreme fire danger, suspect no powertools. (gas powered)

Plan is to install the rear counter, its loaded up in a good buddies trailer. I will add some rails to the shelter, give it more strength, but also a place to lean on, flat top for counter space and then across the back, the 11 foot counter. I want to add another hitching post to place traffic near cabin, stain it and the other one.

Picked up a large new boom sprayer to fit in the back of my Kawasaki Mule and battery powered. I have my ground clear stuff. The campsites and road I have been spraying by hand and its overwhelming me, I cant keep up, this should give me better odds now.

Boom Sprayer with spot wand too.

Anyway, wife, myself, Nugget my french bulldog, good buddy and another hubby wife team. Hubby wife team pulls out Sunday, wife pulls out Monday, I stay behind and my pal does and we do work.

I'll take pictures. I'm going to install that large saw too Paulz. I'll take pictures of it installed.
