HAVE SAWMILL WILL TRAVEL
OVER THE YEARS IN THE FLOORING BUSINESS I HAVE WATCHED PEOPLE CLEAR THEIR LAND ,AND MANY TIMES THERE WOULD BE A LARGE TREES , OAK, PINES, CYPRESS , HICKORY , PECAN, THAT HAD TO BE TAKEN DOWN BECAUSE THEY WHERE IN THE WAY OF THE HOUSE OR DRIVE WAY. OFTEN THESE TREES WOULD BE CHOPPED UP AND HAULED AWAY TO THE DUMP OR CUT AND SPLIT FOR FIREWOOD. IT ALWAYS BOTHERED ME THAT THESE BEAUTIFUL OLD TREES WHERE BEING WASTED,BUT IT WAS TO COSTLY TO TRANSPORT THE LOGS TO A MILL WHICH WAS USUALLY 100 OR SO MILES,AWAY SAWED INTO BOARDS AND TRANSPORTED BACK. SO I LOOKED AROUND TO FIND A COST EFFECTED WAY TO PROCESS THESE TREES .AND DISCOVERED PORTABLE SAW MILLS, AND BOUGHT ONE , NOW I CAN BRING THE SAW MILL TO YOU , CUT THE LOGS INTO BOARDS FOR YOU TO ANY THICKNESS, AND EVEN CUT THE LOGS INTO BEAMS ,WHICH CAN BE USED IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF YOUR HOME, WHEN LUMBER IS CUT FROM A LOG THE WOOD IS GREEN [ FULL OF WATER] AND HAS TO BE DRIED TO BE ABLE TO BE USED INSIDE THE HOUSE , SO I BUILT A KILN [ BUILDING USED TO DRY LUMBER] NOW NOT ONLY CAN WE BRING OUR SAWMILL TO YOUR PROPERTY AND CUT THE LOGS INTO SLABS , WE CAN TRANSPORT THAT LUMBER TO OUR KILN AND DRY IT FOR YOU , PROVIDING YOU WITH 100’S IF NOT THOUSANDS OF BOARD FEET OF USABLE LUMBER AT A VERE REASONABLE COST.
EXAMPLE : A OAK LOG 24″ IN DIAMETER AND 15 FEET LONG WILL YIELD OVER 300 BOARD FEET OF LUMBER . THE COST TO CUT AND DRY THE LUMBER WOULD BE APPOX $2.50 A BOARD FOOT OR ABOUT $750.00 , AND THIS WOULD GIVE YOU 300 B/F OF USABLE OAK TO BUILD BOOK CASES ,SHELVES , TABLES , EVEN CABINETS. IF YOU WENT TO A RETAIL LUMBER YARD YOU WOULD PAY APPOX $9.00 A B/F OR $2700.00. FOR THE SAME MATERIAL , THAT IS A SAVING OF $1950.00 ON JUST ONE TREE.
BY PROCESSING THE TREES ON YOUR LAND YOU CAN SAVE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS, AND INSTEAD OF BURNING OR DUMPING THE TREES YOU CAN TURN THE TREES INTO BEAUTIFUL, WOOD PRODUCTS FOR YOUR HOME,
