Logs to Lumber

Many oak trees were cut down on my parent’s farm as part of a forestry management program. I contracted with a local sawyer, Amaral Mills (great to work with!) , to quartersaw these trees into usable boards. We had most of this milled into 4/4 boards (about 1″ thick), with some 8/4 boards (2″ thick) and some 16/4 (4″x4″) posts. The lumber filled two hoop houses, which are used as drying sheds (only one is pictured above). See the hoop house project for more on constructing the drying sheds.

If you need quartersawn white oak for a project, let me know! I am selling it for a reasonable price and you can come and pick out specific pieces if you’d like.
