The more I got into making my own lumber, the more I really needed a trailer. For years, I had want my own trailer outfitted with a loading mechanism. After building the mechanism, including the new arch mounts, I took the trailer out to pick up some large ash logs that were listed on craigslist for firewood. I hauled them to my backyard, cut them into slabs, and stacked them with all my other slabs to dry.
