Title: Now this is a sawmill!
Post by: Brian_Weekley on November 05, 2018, 09:43:28 PM
I've been watching a series about a young Brit restoring the 1910 wooden boat, Tally Ho.  It's really a very interesting story.  A lot of great woodworking footage about boat building.  However, I thought you'd get a kick out of this episode about milling live oak for the project.

No doubt that guy is related to @4x4American (http://forestryforum.com/board/index.php?action=profile;u=24510) as he uses the same "grab something and see what happens" method!

Yeah, that approach didn't work out so well for that F16 mechanic across the pond a couple weeks back.  ;D

That's Cross Sawmill. He saws some big logs and has a bunch of good videos. If that place ever caught fire it would burn for days! I think he's still got bark from his first log lying on the ground.
