A large cottonwood log is slabbed in preparation for cutting 1X12 siding boards. Don Harvey of Bern Kansas is at the controls. The bottom side has already been slabbed; once all four sides are cut the right dimensions, the boards will be cut off very quickly. The sawmill runs both days of Old Albany Days in September.

After the oats were cut, the Albany crew worked hard in the sawmill all afternoon, making siding boards for the new barn that is coming along well. We hope to have all the siding on before the show.

Paul Huffman on the Binder, and Don Harvey driving the WC Allis make short work of the oat crop Saturday morning. The oats will dry for at least a week and then it will be time to load them on racks and store them until Old Albany Days, September 7th and 8th.

The oats are cut and shocked; the Albany volunteers had a busy Saturday morning preparing the oats to be threshed at Old Albany Days in September.
