-Do you have logs ready to be cut? Here are some tips so you can be ready!
-Make sure logs are accessible or you have machinery to do so.
-Keep logs free of dirt and garbage as this dulls blades.
-The Woodmizer sawmill is 26ft long plus a vehicle, so make sure you have room!
-Get 4x4s to stack cut lumber onto after it is cut.
-Having an extra helping hand will greatly increase productivity and make your dollar go farther.
-If necessary, we will provide plastic to keep sawdust off of ground or road.
-If you plan to store the cut lumber at the site it is best to stack on top of a flat concrete slab or 4x4s that are level.
-Also, a cover over the stack, like a tarp or steel fence sheets.
-We can apply a wax sealer and stack your cut lumber with boards in between for additional cost. (Sticker, stack, and seal). This will make sure your boards or slabs will dry evenly and not too fast.
-Okay, did you get all of that? Let's sum it up!
