I saw a lot of you viewed one of my posts where I had a picture of the sawmill set up to rip a beam. I thought you may like to see a video of the same thing.

Here, we are ripping a 14’ fireplace mantel: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=1393481400869740&set=vb.139160232949680&type=2&theater

Here is a smaller one: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=1380835795467634&set=vb.139160232949680&type=2&theater

Enjoy!

So… you don’t have a metal detector? I heard it hit that nail. What’s that do to your blade?

Yep…hit a nail. And yes…use a nail detector.

I’d hate to figure out a dust collection for that beast. What size is the blade used?

Really cool video, but this post really belongs in the forums or posted as a video or blog. It’s not a finished project made of wood.

Ho Lee Mack Rel ! What a machine. Thanks for the video. And for my liking you can keep posting on the “projects” as it’s clearly a finished woodworking machine.

Hi TJVD

Yeah…a saw mill can make you realize what cutting is all about.

It’s a finished cut and a mantel with a natural finish. Once the cutting is done…it’s a finished product.

That’s a pretty cool way to make a mantle. Any ideas on the weight of the smaller one? I would expect it to need quite a bit of support.

That one weighed in the 80lb range. We make sure they have LOTS of support!
