Now it's my turn, teak sawmillshed, lol
« on: August 09, 2020, 09:25:07 AM »
My layout is way off because it wasn't planed to have a sawmill operation. the log yard is in the middle the sawmill on the left side and the lumber storage on the right side, so it was very inconvenient and inefficient to move the lumber 30m on my pickup.
Because of the hard situation we all face this year i didn't want to spend much money on this build so i decided to go with wood instead of steel because thats what i have for free on my plantations. A teakwood sawmill shed! you guys must think that i went bananas

It's 4 corner posts, which two of them are 6x6 teak posts on top of the concrete wall and two 9x9 ironwood pillars which go 1m into the ground, then two 9m 6x8 teak beams and the rafters on top, pretty simple.

Maybe you see the yellow line on the ground, that's the circumference of the new roof, the two oil buckets is where the ironwood posts go


the beams i had already posted in another topic








Starting with the wood joints, real carpinters work, which i have never done before. they turned out astonishingly nice, it's very very slow but i'm absolutely pleased with the results!

the structure over the concrete is done, now to the harder end. need to do some pockets and cuts in the ironwood. they weight around 300-400kg so there is no bringing them into the wood workshop and tossing them around.




had to make my own teak dowel pins, thanks youtube









the ironwood, they are another chapter! 



the vegetable harvest is also good this year

Amazing straight logs you have there.  Do you use glue in the joints as well as pegs?

Yes sir, i'm not bad at it i guess. it was alot easier afterwards on the sawmill, just slide back and forth and turn. no adjusting height, searching for the center, take out the slack,.....

neee, as i will oil the parts completely disassembled with 2 coats of linseed oil the glue would not hold. i probably put a little glue on the pegs so they wont loosen in dry season
