I need short logs milled in Long Island = Help
Need some advice as I'm really not willing to let these prime pieces of black cherry logs go. :no:
I had a large black cherry tree fall in the hurricane. As I was surfing the web as to how to replace this tree (it was one of my favorites), I learned (too late) the value of the wood. I had already had the tree cut up into pieces less than 4 feet and some only 1.5 ft.
I live in long Island and am thinking of going with a horizontal band saw or an Alaskan Chainsaw Mill. I was thinking of lining up all the same diameter pieces in a row against the foundation of my home, set back with a couple of cinderblocks to give clearance when I get to the end of the horizontal pieces near my foundation.
Having trouble finding a shop with a horizontal bandsaw service where I live or any other shop that can mill my wood.
Anybody else have any ideas?
Might want to go back and add your location in your profile in case someone here is near you.
I'm thinking that's not a great choise of wood for direct ground contact.
I'd be looking for a real saw mill.
Need short logs milled
Thanks Joe. I'll add my location and I agree with you that this should be done on some sort of platform or sawhorses, still trying to figure out the setup.
No I mean take it to a real place that cuts up logs, a saw mill.
It would only take them a few min. to cut them up.
saw a guy in remote Alaska using a chain saw mill. ( one of the DIY shows) looks like someonw with a good amount of experience with a chainsaw could do this.
lots of google info on this
Go to Woodworking Talk---the link is at the bottom of the page----then got to forestry and logging---
Darren has a list of mills---I believe there is one on long island---also--- Woodmizer keeps a list of bandsaw mill owners--so check out their site----
If you bought a chainsaw, 'n Alaskan chainsaw millin' attachment, you need to do each piece, Individually, not strung together against a chunk of concrete..
In that case you'll have over a Grand into some tiny pieces of rough cut very short lumber,...

The 2nd reason is, yer so called "Logs" are to short to mount in a saw carriage...
8' is 'bout minimum length,...
