Acorn to Arabella: Picking up the Pace Making Planks

Today we find Steve and a collection of skilled friends working on planking and preparing for the sawmill’s arrival. The crew of Acorn to Arabella have been able to motor along with the oak planking, even with Alex away. With three people in the shop, two could work on Arabella while the third picked timber and made planks. Steve’s Grandpa, the landowner who’s old-growth trees are becoming Arabella, helps out by firing up the old Massey Ferguson tractor and smooths out the wood yard road in preparation for the sawmill to arrive. There’s lots to be done in the boathouse, but Steve and his crew have a steady pace that’s should make quick work of these last oak planks below the waterline.  Check out today’s video of the week!
