I think you’ll find that in order to make a decent return on your investment in a saw mill, you’re going to have to push a lot of BF of lumber through it. And that may not leave you with time for any wood working.

Just crunch the numbers for return on investment… (where I work, an asset is expected to pay for itself in 2 years).

Rather than run a mill for hire, you may do better sourcing logs and then milling lumber for sale.

Hope you got a big yard :^)
