Have a look at this rip on the saw mill. We ripped a 19 foot long barn beam for the outside skins for a custom faux barn beam wrap. We have never ripped a beam this long before because the saw table is too short. So…we had to rip as far as we could and then pull everything back on the table and then resume the rip.

The new project screen says, “Yes, I want to post my finished project that is made of wood”. In what way is this a finished project?

Hi Brian

The rip is a finished skin. From the milling standpoint…it is a finished product. I cut the beam at the mill from a raw product (a beam) into a finished product (a barn beam skin). Project completed!

Also, as a component of the project I posted just before…it is a material. But I showed pictures of it as a further finished product (a wrapped barn beam).

I hope that clears things up for you!

Just wondering Brian…do you mill your own lumber?

Nice work. What species of wood is the beam?

I have a sawmill and mill my own lumber and understand. I bet that beam was tough on saw blades. How did you get such a heavy piece in place? Either an army of people or ingenuity.

Hi Ross

It is a pine beam.
