We are a sawmill and kiln operation. Our main focus in sawing our logs into furniture grade lumber, kiln drying it and selling the lumber. We also sell firewood slabs and sawdust.
I have an older model "1988" Wood-Mizer LT 40 hydraulic. It is a solid old machine and I bought it off an old man that used to saw for me before I decided to get into it. I fell into this by accident. Five to seven years ago I had the land and trees and I like to wood work. I had some equipment and started taking down trees. Back then I was hauling the logs to other mills and having them sawed up for my own use. The next thing I knew I had 10,000 bf stacked up and decided to sell some of it. My phone rang off the hook and I thought it was fun so I picked up the pace a little.
