Bandsaw Mill

Saw Mill

A saw mill can be a huge asset to a small farm; there’s lumber for building, edgings for firewood, saw dust for gardens and the ability to earn some extra money by sawing lumber for other people.

We’ve spent the past few years researching sawmills and even started to build our own. But with projects piling up and trees falling in the woods we decided now was the time to purchase one. We bought ours from Thomas Bandsaw Mills because we like how their mills are made, and it’s a local company, only about an hour from our home.

Already word has gotten out and we are making a little extra money sawing lumber for a local farm.

My list of projects keeps growing --- now to only find the time to get them done!
