Topic tags/keywords: saw mill logs lumber oak

I found a very large oak that had been cut down at a house not far from mine. I was able to get a few of the large logs home and I am looking for a mill that will cut the logs for me for a reasonable price. Any suggestions?

While this is my first post, I’ve been avidly looking through the postings on this site for weeks, so I knew this would be the best place to ask.

Thanks,

Campbell

Go to the Woodmizer website. There you will find instructions on how to contact sawyers with Woodmizer mills in your area. They keep a list of people willing to cut your logs for you.

I get my wood at a sawmill in Sanger Texas. Just north of Denton. Called “Woods of Mission Timber” They may cut it for you.

That seems like a long drive to have logs loaded up. Seems much more economical to search Woodmizer or craigslist for a local sawyer.

Around here, sawmills won’t even fool with ya unless you have an 18-wheeler loaded down. Even then, some won’t do it unless you have 9 more following it.

Also look on Craigs list. Some of the traveling bandsaw mills advertise on there from time to time.
