If you have a tree coming down, and would like to have us mill it for you, we're here to help with that. We will cut live edge or straight edge, thick or thin, to most standard or custom sizes. This is also available if you have a tree that's been down some time, or have located a trunk that you want milled. We can also surface boards for you, whether you bought them from us, or someone else. Keep reading for more details on how this works!
We use a Turbo Saw Mill M12/22A swing-head circular mill. This machine can cut a log up to a 48" diameter, any length from 4' - 22'. Max depth of cut is 12" per side, so a double cut can be up to 24" across. Slabs, planks, beams, dimensional lumber, and turning blocks cut to your specifications are available.
For surfacing, we have an SCMI 16" jointer and an SAC 24" planer, both industrial machines. Our equipment makes rough lumber smooth and we can plane your wood down to a specific thickness. We do not offer contouring, moulding or shaping operations.
Re-saw service is not currently offered. We may be able to do saw-planing for you, if you have larger pieces that are a little too rough. Straight edging operations also available in some cases. Call for details.
All custom cuts and surfacing work is done by appointment, as dictated by our current workload. Same-day turnaround is generally not available.
Our base rate is $100/hour + tax. This fee includes the necessary equipment and personnel to get the job done. The minimum charge for sawing trees into lumber is $75. This includes inspection of wood condition, determination of cuts, metal detection, and 30 minutes of mill time.
Planing services are also charged at $100/hour, in quarter hour increments. Minimum is $25, which includes inspection, plan of work, and 15 minutes of mill time.
Transportation of raw materials from your site to the facility starts at $300/hour, and will be negotiated separately from the mill work. We do not currently offer delivery of products or finished millwork.
Drying and storage are available, subject to space availability; call for details.
