Sorry for the ignorant question, but how do you handle this from here?
What are the steps of getting this from a wet root to finished lumber?
Thanks.

Jeff, here's a cool video I found of a guy using a chainsaw sawmill to cut up logs into planks, pretty interesting.

Hey Jei’son, I looked into one on those Logosol log cutting jigs. The 2G price put me off.

I have had the Logosol Woodworkers Mill for several years now and it paid for itself the first year. Alot of the initial cost is in the chainsaw, you need a powerful one that will pull some chips when you are cuttiing with a big chainsaw bar. I got the Husky 385XP with a 36” bar, it alone was around 1,000 back then. So alot of your initial cost is in the saw or powerhead. I also bought an 8 foot extension for my mill, but never put it on, it can be modified to bolt to the side of a BIG log in the field and on the ground, so you can slab it out, do that for awhile and sell the slabs and earn enough money to get a high dollar mill w hydraulics :) Just an idea…
