Our sawmill operation offers personalized service and custom sawn lumber. Rough cut lumber is not available at large building supply stores, and lumber sawn to unusual dimensions specific to a special project is available only as an expensive special order prices at the large home improvement stores. We custom saw your logs to your specifications. Our current rates for sawing soft woods (pine, cedar, etc.) is $.30 / board foot and our hardwood rate is $.35 / board foot. We also must charge for blade damage for metal in the logs and we generally tell our customers that rate is "$27.00 per nail". That is the cost of a blade and it is useless after striking metal in a log.
One suggestion we like to offer is that customers saw their logs into the length boards they need and add 4"-6" for trim on the lumber. For instance if you need 10' lumber, saw your logs 10'6". This extra length allows you to square up your lumber for your building projects.
No matter the size lumber you need we can saw it. We've sawn 1/2 inch thick lumber up to 16" x 16" beams. Pine, oak, cedar, Osage orange, China berry, cherry, red maple, persimmon, and even some sweet gum. We've sawn a variety of species to meet our customer's needs.
Our thin-kerf band mill reduces waste which increases log productivity and gives our customers more lumber for their money from their logs. From 1 log to several hundred, we can saw any order and are sure you'll be pleased with the results.
Currently our sawyer rates are $300/Thousand for pine and other soft woods to $350/Thousand for hardwoods. Please call if you have questions about our lumber or sawing services.
