« Part 12: Been a while Part 13 of Building my dream shop series Part 14: Shop Update, Tool Gloat, Wood Gloat »

We did finish the planting for this season. The deer convinced us that a fence was needed, so we got that project done. I have been working a little in the shop, but mainly working on changing all the log piles into lumber for future use. Back when I was researching to determine what sawmill to purchase, I did not find any video to help me make a decision, so I wanted to post something in case others need a comparison. I made a video of how my EZ Boardwalk Jr sawmill works, and also show processing a log.

I posted two videos on YouTube.

Part one is
EZ Boardwalk Jr Features and Demo Part 1 of 2

The second video (EZ Boardwalk Jr Features and Demo Part 2 of 2) picks up where the first one ends

The first video mostly walks thru the different operational aspects of the sawmill using annotations, and the second shows cutting a log into lumber. It was a bit windy that day, so you can hear some wind noise when the saw is not running.

I have sent my sawmill blades off for re-sharpening, so I plan to try and get my cyclone dust collector installation finished next. Hopefully, that will be the next blog subject in the near future.

This is awesome! Like I told you before, I would be really interested to come out and help you out. I am itching for a sawmill as of recently. Holler if you want helping hauling logs or rough cutting them.

Also, be sure to let me know when you get that dust extractor set up.
