We can mill your logs for you. We have a portable bandsaw mill capable of milling logs up to 900mm wide. Being a bandsaw this is very efficient and there is little waste of the log. We are familiar with most milling techniques including quarter sawing. We do not just “slab” logs unless that is what is required. Logs larger than 900 can still be cut with the bandsaw, we will just cut it into smaller sections first. Milling is usually done at our premises, but we can mill on your site if required. We also have a Lucas Mill capable of slabbing up to 1.9m wide. Logs shorter than 2.4m or with a diameter less than 300mm will usually not be viable to mill.
NOTE: There is a minimum $110 charge for milling.
In addition, we can also machine and sand your timber for you.
