Sawmill questions

In modern times, sawmills are where massive amounts of raw lumber is produced into usable wooden boards and planks. Simply put, a log is entered at one end and a board is removed at the other. Sawmills do this by utilizing a variety of different saws, like band saws and circular saws which make the main cuts into the lumber. The wood is further trimmed into usable material by resaws until it fits the proper dimensions.

  • Where can I find a sawmill
    Most large sawmills are located by large forests. If you happen to live in a highly forested area, then you probably have commercial sawmills within driving distance. However, not everyone has a sawmills close by, but can find their products and local home improvement and builder supply shops. Furthermore, another option to consider is a small local sawmill. Most towns do have local sawmills. If you have a tree fallen down that you would like cut up into lumber, a sawmill can do that.

  • If I have a fallen tree, do I need to use a sawmill?
    No, not unless you want to reuse the lumber. If you don't care about the lumber, then you can simply cut up the tree with a chainsaw and discard the logs.

  • What about portable sawmills?
    A portable sawmill is a small device that can cut up logs just like a regular sized sawmill. It is sold in some stores and able to used by a homeowner. If your land has a lot of trees, or you have a special interest in woodworking with hardwoods that are hard to find, a portable sawmill would likely be a good investment.
