a day in the life of brattleboro--allard's sawmill

on old ferry road.
i watched, mesmerized, as bark was peeled from trees
and sawdust piled up in fragrant hills.

I'm always amazed when I find places like this because there are so many things I don't know much about. I can smell the sawdust, though!

Just the bark Brattcat? Is it for aromatic purposes?

Sharon said...

Lowell beat me to it, my first thought was about the wonderful woody smell that must be coming off this.

My first thought was of the loud buzzing of the saws and how dangerous they are.

We both posted about machines at work today!:o)

I would rather see this on your blog than be next to the machine with its piercing sounds!

Something enchanting about piles of new sawdust. . .

I've never had an opportunity to see that. What do they do with the results - use it for particle board?

Doug Hickok said...

Well, it will hopefully go to good use Brattcat. Your image certainly conjures the aroma of chipped wood!

I would like to feel the smell around, I'm curious!

i'm not certain what is done with the sawdust but i feel fairly confident that absolutely nothing goes to waste.
