Logs To Lumber

Whether you're milling your own logs or hiring a sawyer, learn the process for getting usable lumber from trees.

When it comes to woodworking, one of the things that drew me in immediately was the material that we work with. Our medium grows all around us and each tree has its own story to tell. No two trees are the same, and it’s something akin to a treasure hunt when you cut into a log. You never know what you’ll find. In recent years, I’ve noticed the number of people that are interested in milling their own lumber has gone through the roof. Here, I want to walk you through what you can expect when working with a sawyer, based on my experience before I purchased my own saw mill.
