I have been building a database of sawmills and put it together as a Sawmill Locater where you can search by state to find sawmills that provide custom cutting services and sell specialty lumber. Locate a mill near you or many will ship lumber if you find they have access to exotic or hard to find species you might be interested in. Please follow this link to search by state: http://portablesawmill.info

As some LJ’s may know I have a Sawmill Locater service where you can search for Sawyers and portable sawmills around the US and Canada. I have now expanded it to cover Australia, Europe and New Zealand. If there are any Sawyers who would like to place there information for others to search you will find more information here: http://westcoastlands.net/FindASawer.htmlSo far there has been a good response and it has proven to be a success for both woodworkers looking for mills and the Sawyers needing outlets for there materials and services.

Thanks for the post. I have your website bookmarked. If I get to a point where I need to look for customers to saw for I will let you know. Right now I have more than I know what to do with and very little time.

I really enjoy doing unusual logs that nobody else would ever think of sawing. Finding a downed log partially decomposed has yeilded some amazing boards/projects. Same with crotch, twisted or atypical logs

The most unusual thing I found in a log was an indian arrowhead buried several inches in cherry.

Here is an updated address for the Sawmill Locater: http://www.portablesawmill.biz/concrete/ This is a new website set up for sawmill advertising and anyone who is looking for a sawmill service or unique lumber. Please let me know if you have any suggestions to make this a better site.

Thanks

Nice video Ron. The saw seems pretty quiet.

Nice Ron, I spent a summer in Twain Hart back in the 80’s. Wonderful Place.
