Turn your Logs into Valuable Lumber
Rough Saw Oak Side Boards
Trailer Deck Boards
We set up our portable sawmill at your location.
Or, bring your logs to one of our two locations in Acworth, GA or Wedoweee, AL
We work closely with property owners from beginning to end to produce the highest quality lumber possible from your trees.
What to Expect
- Logs saw best when they are still green, so call us to schedule an appointment prior to cutting your trees. However, logs can be sawed regardless of the length of time, but for the best quality, green lumber is paramount.
- It may take several days to complete your job. Depending on the size of your job, number of logs to be cut, what sizes, availability of material, how well the weather cooperates.
- Logs 8 -18 feet long and approximately 8" and greater in diameter on the small end make great candidates for sawing on our portable sawmill however this is just a guideline. We can cut other size logs also.
Before We Arrive for Sawmilling
You must complete the following before we arrive to insure the smoothest experience possible and to avoid any delay.
- Dirty logs must be cleaned in order to be sawed.
- Stack the logs in the same direction, large ends together.
- Remove all nails and other foreign materials, (i.e. rocks, fence wire, fence insulators). If you find any that you cannot remove any, mark them plainly.
NOTE: If we hit a nail while sawmilling there will be an additional charge for the damaged blade.
- We require an open area to setup our operation; typically, it is placed alongside the logs. The logs are rolled to the mill on one side, where they are lifted up onto the bed of the sawmill to begin the cut. The waste from the log is removed and exits at the tongue end. Boards are cut to your specifications and stacked accordingly.
- Prepare a location near the logs for us to stack your logs once they’ve been cut. Remember it takes 3 months for your new lumber to air dry.
You should seal the ends within minutes after being cut down; you should not wait hours, and definitely not days!
The drying time will vary depending on the wood species and thickness of the logs, but they will take at least one to two years to dry – the longer you can leave them before you start building the better.
