Do share. I am having a chestnut tree in my backyard cut down this winter and will save the trunk for sawing into usable lumber…I hope

Hugh, I am looking forward to seeing pictures. You are performing a wonderful service and salvaging some invaluable wood. Several years ago I had to have a cherry and some ash trees taken out and tried unsuccessfully to find someone to mill them into lumber. They ended up going for firewood since no one would mill them. Needless to say I almost cried over the cherry.

Hugh, welcome to LJ’s, I own a sawmill and kiln operation in Wisconsin. Sawing is a lot of workbut it is also very rewarding. Let me know if I could help out in any way.

Here are a few pictures of my sawmill. This was my first log to mill. I started out with the pine log that is 23” dia x 100” long. I plan on making 2×4’s and 2×6’s out of it to build a storage shed. I have several southern red oak logs to cut and a 2 white oak logs. Thanks Phil. You are right about a lot of work. It is a stress reliever.

You have the frame right, but check you this video and you might take your mill down this path http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzrxHjCRpJE
