Charles De Greek   •   Ceres, CA   •   LT40 Super  •   100% of lumber cut on mill   •   Priceless


"My little ones love what we do with the mill and the creative things we make. This log bench was made by three little girls, Alex 12, Jessica 7, and Maya 6. These kids are awesome! They cut the wood, sanded it all down, bolted it all together and even put on an oil finish. It was awesome watching and teaching my little ones to use our family business tools safely."
