That’s a $2k to $4k gross. The net would depend on the expenses. How many board feet are involved? How much time and expense (including paperwork)? What is the equipment required? Do you have any sawmilling experience? Mis-cutting one shipment could hurt you real bad. Where does the veneer come in? Is it a full time proposition or part of a larger overall operation? I’d look at it really closely, and not depend on it as a sole source of income. In my experience running a portable sawmill, you’ve got to consider all the possibilities, but be realistic. No easy money that I’ve ever found.
