I’m working on a glue up that will have over 1000 pieces of teak wood, and be about 98% green.
i just became full owner of a small saw mill, i need to set it up for what my need in wood are.
that’s wood is teak. some white and brown mix. its the thin out teak from plantation teak growing
and we are replant two for each one we remove. the longest piece i need will be 20 in’s long and 1 in wide so i will have almost no wast. i will replace all the old equipment. please. please give me your advice I’m a little green with this the the glue up will be a shopping cart that will save some needs for plastic bags. i need one so I’m going to build a few. i almost died last year and i will be 72 soon, just something to do for this well used planet we live on. if you wont to help i will give you a room to live in. hurry i will be a 100 soon, i hope.

What kind of sawmill did you get? How about some pictures of the sawmill and the glue up your are building. I’m 62 and I run a manual sawmill too. I’ve got 5 big logs to saw tomorrow. I just wish they were teak!

Sounds like a good move Occie, is the sawmill just for your own work or commercial. As Hal said a photo or two would be great. Would love to come over and give you a hand, maybe before you turn 100.
