Make your own lumber!

June 1, 2017

Do you have trees in your yard?  Do you have a reason to cut some down (like they're close to your house and HUGE)?  Do you have a chainsaw or two?  Do you have an Alaskan chainsaw mill?


Well, we have all of those things and that's why I'm making my own oak lumber.


I brought the large slabs into the shop and further processed them into usable sizes.  It takes a while for lumber to dry to a usable moisture content (up to a year per inch of thickness).  Here's what two sections of one tree look like drying in the shop.

This is our future kitchen floor!
