Earl is not afraid of taking on big milling jobs however. Earlier this year he took on a large job cutting big 27ft long beams to mill heaps of 10″x12″ posts – a total of 6,000 board feet!
Work comes easily through word of mouth, says Earl. “The many people who hire me for custom work aren’t happy at all with the fact I will be moving!”
Before leaving Tatla Lake, Earl has been helping out in the community by supplying wood for a beautiful community/concession building. His mill was used to flatten the ceiling logs before the roof was installed.
In the future he wants to get into furniture making, and with where he’s heading, perhaps boat making too!
