« Part 1: Before you have lumber, you need to make timber. Part 2 of Turning Gasoline into Lumber series no next part

So after playing around with the Alaskan saw mill, using the chainsaw, I saw that I wanted to do this, but that was just too slow. So we upped our game and got the Norwood HD36 bandmill. The link below is my first video on using the 36 inch Bandmill (13 foot bed).

I am neither good at making videos, nor am I very good as a sawyer. But I am having a great time.

Sawing your own lumber is an addiction. Lots of work, but worth it. Good luck sir.

Yeah @Monte, I hear you, at first it was the Stihl MS290 chainsaw, than the MS362, and the Alaskan Sawmill, than the MS660, and than the 36 inch Norwood Bandmill, 13 foot bed. But I love the journey, and I get great lumber and by-products for my projects.

Have your say...
