Portable sawing for the NWA area
NWA Sawmill LLC specializes in custom cutting logs to meet your unique need. Whether you have a fallen tree or a reclaimed barn timber, I can mill almost anything you have into what you need. Logs up to 20' long and 32" diameter can be cut on my Wood-Mizer sawmill.
Unsure just how much lumber might be in those logs? The 1/4" International Log Rule will give you an idea of how many board feet of lumber can be cut from a sound log with our thin kerf band-saw mill. All you need is to follow the link above and grab a tape measure!
Saw Mill Fees
(Changes in fees with new equipment)
Sawing will be charged at $75 per hour with a 4 hour minimum for any portable work.
On portable jobs there will be a setup fee which amounts to $1.50 per mile, plus a trip fee of $.75 per mile for return trips on extended jobs.
Sometimes trees, especially around homes or fences, can have ingrown trash, nails, or wire that will destroy a saw blade. Blades significantly damaged due to foreign objects will cost a $25 replacement fee, so please let me know if you suspect ingrown material in the logs.
- Board-Foot = 1"x12"x12" (1 square foot that is 1 inch thick) of lumber.
- Branches should be cut off as closely to the log as possible to facilitate efficient milling
- Logs should be kept as clean as possible. This reduces the need for excessive cleaning or debarking.
- Any suspected metal or other foreign objects in the log should be mentioned at the beginning. I have a metal detector for more precise locating of any embedded metal. Trees can and will grow over almost anything with time and can hide these hidden objects well.
