We offer convenient milling services for most logs and large-scale dimensional lumber. Our on-site mill can form your salvaged logs into usable lumber for your future projects. Our sawyer maps out the log to yield the most attractive slabs and will guide you through the drying process. For an additional fee, our sawyer can stack your material with drying stickers.
Our Super Slabber Lucas Mill has the capacity to handle logs up to 74" wide and 312" long. With its built-in Honda V-Twin 20hp engine, it can handle all types of hard and soft woods with ease.
Depending on the size of your log, we can mill 2.5"-3" thick slabs, 3"-6" thick mantels, rounds/cookies, dimensional lumber, or a combination of your choice.

THINGS TO KNOW
We do not offer transportation of logs to (or from) our facility. Milling is performed at our site and we do not offer onsite milling. Log drop-offs must be approved and scheduled.
Due to the nature of trees and how they grow- nails, screws, bullets, and other objects are undetectable in the log and can cause damage. Fees will incur for each debris strike found.
For most hardwood slabs, we recommend allowing 1 full spring and summer season (5-12 months) for slabs to air dry before kiln-drying. Softwoods may require less air-drying time.
After milling, we recommend applying Anchorseal Green Wood Sealer to the ends of your material. This wax sealer controls the rate of moisture loss and helps minimize end checks.
Consider adding on services such as vacuum-kiln drying, surfacing, cutting, wide-belt sanding, and/or full-finishing for a seamless process.
We do not offer air-drying storage. Once milled, all material(s) will be stored for pickup in our outdoor sheds and will be held for a maximum of 2 weeks before storage fees incur.
