This is a Powermatic 221 board planer that’s still in service at the sawmill used to reclaim wood from old demolished houses for use in the construction of “Tiny Texas Houses” in Luling, TX. This was manufactured in the " ‘o-matic days" of the 1950’s.

Canon 5D MK II, Tamron 28-300 VC, 3 images AEB +/-2, tripod mount, processed in aperture and the photomatix plugin

I’m a Miami, Florida-based photographer. I and my camera try to get out as often as possible. These images are the result. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

If you like my images enough to buy them, please know that the income goes back into the art. Thanks for visiting!
