| Working closely with
landowners from start to finish, we strive to produce the highest quality lumber possible
from your trees. We can turn your logs into valuable lumber by setting up our portable
sawmill on your site or if preferred you can bring the logs to our stationary site.
Logs 8 -18 feet long and approximately 8" and greater in
diameter on the small end make great candidates for sawing on our portable sawmill however
this is just a guide line. We can cut other size logs also.
It may take several days to
complete your job depending on the number of logs, how well the weather cooperates, what
size lumber you are wanting cut or mechanical break downs.
The following suggestions are things that you can do before we arrive on your site to
insure the smoothest experience possible.
- Logs are saw milled best when they are still green, which means within
a few weeks of them being felled. Logs can be sawed regardless of the length of time since
they were taken down however for the best quality lumber green is preferred.
- Stack the logs in the same direction, large ends together.
- Keep the logs clean. Dirt and mud dull a sawmill blade and dirty logs
need to be cleaned before they can be sawed.
- Check for nails and other foreign materials, ( i.e. rocks, fence wire,
fence insulators) and if you find some, mark them. If we hit a nail while sawmilling we
will have to charge you for the damaged blade.
- We have to have a little open area to set up my operation. Our sawmill
is typically placed beside the logs, the logs are rolled to the mill on one side where
they are lifted up onto the bed of the sawmill. The waste product from the log is removes
from the sawmill on the tongue end. Boards produced are then removed from the tongue end
of the mill to your specifications.
It will take
approx. 3 months for your new lumber to air dry. A simple stacking method is used to
promote air around the lumber to help it dry. 1 inch square sticks (called stickers) are
carefully placed to space out the lumber. We can cut these for you and place them while
stacking your lumber or you can make your own. You'll find that we are most flexible to
work with and can do as much or as little as you prefer.
Using the stationary sawmill on our site, we can cut your logs or
mine up to 55 feet in length as this sawmill has extensions added on to it.
