Topic tags/keywords: milling wood

I have acquired a potpourri of logs from some really great and rather uncommon tropical hardwood trees:

Tabebuia Caraiba (Ipe)
Wild Tamarind (Sabicu)
Sissoo (Indian Rosewood)
Eucalyptus Grandis (Rose Gum)
Holly (East Palatka)
I’ve been offered a Silky Oak (Grevillea Robusta – Lacewood) that I haven’t cut it down yet, but probably will soon.

Podocarpus (a “softwood” that isn’t tropical)

I would really like to cut down on waste by cutting them up on a mill with a thin kerf and a parallel mechanism (as opposed to butchering them with my thick chain saw). None of them are long enough to fit on the local commercial mill.

If anybody wants to help me out I’d be more than glad to hand over some of the planks in exchange.

hey Aron, There are a few guys north of Tampa w/ a WMizer, but there’s one stand out and that is Manley Hunt. I know he travels to miami several times a year for some exotic wood. at the very least he may put you in contact with other cutters. He loves wood and talking so you may be on the phone a while. 352-726-1717 good luck
