    The oak was hard but it cut easier. I think it was a two fold problem. The pine seemed to have sand embedded in it and the pitch was a problem in gumming up the blade even using the soap lubricant.

    The changing of blades is a big deal to me at 20 bucks a blade also.

    Piece by piece the pine might cut faster but when I figured in blade changing and cleaning the oak went better. Yea, my oak is extremely hard too, I have to shoot the nails through it. A hammer is worthless...almost.

    That is 14x14 with 6 inch walls you end up with 13 interior... so OCD can rest easy now.

    Hi Coffee - now that you are a declared healthy, newly married, farm owner - would you consider posting pictures of the farm again? I am being lazy and not wanting to go back to look them up. If its a big deal then don't bother.
