Everybody asks us how long a log can you saw, today we put it to the test!!! This is a 21' long pine log being sawed into 6" x 10" beams! It was a good thing it was only 21' and not 21' 1". It was not fun but 21' long is the max!!
Out of kilns today and ready to go, 8/4 Red Oak and 4/4 Elm!!!! We started sawing on 8/4 Hard Maple and all of it is turning out spalted!!! So we dividing in into 8/4 lumber and big live edge slabs. Check out the photo's and these are being loaded in one kiln today and expected out 4 to 6 weeks!!!
