Take a gander at my mill in my gallery.
I can cut cookies on my mill,  I prefer to cut them if they are 16 to 24 in dia
The small ones dont sell very well and or not very profitable for my time into them.

now cutting/ milling laying down, my bunks are 1 foot on center. I cut lots of short logs.

Welcome to the Forum Montana Sawyer.

If you are a member of AAW ( American Association of Woodturners).  Check out the April 2010 Vol 25, No 2 Issue.

Beginning on page 28 they have an article about cutting bowl blanks on a portable sawmill.  It looks like other forum members have given you some good advice, so this article is just another possible answer.

We would love to see some pictures of your turning.

Good luck

Close to a year ago, I gave away my Daughter Caitlin to Levi Entz. These cookies were her idea, they turned out beautiful, as did the bride and groom!

  

  

  

   and the best thing is they will make it home for Christmas this year!

I've got movable bunks on my Thomas. I can just slide them together and clamp a piece of firewood up to 24" on end and slice away. Or slide them apart a bit and drop one end of the log down between the rails, clamp, and saw on the diagonal.
It can make for some very marketable cookies. It is hard on blades as a not too sharp one won't like the diagonal or cross cutting and those short pieces always seem to have a lot of grit in the bark.

That was another reason why I brought a Thomas. Even though I never have done that.

Shelbycharger, this was a  rental, last minute deal, not due to anything except a change in plans due to a transfer in post.  The wedding was to be the following May, in our field across the drive.  We worked most of the fall cleaning up from a tornado's damage, then the change in plans, go figure that one.  this is at Cedar stone logde in Eminence, MO, a very nice place, backhome and country.  under three weeks planning, and as you might expect, a perfect wedding!  This being said, of all the cookies cut, the ones that were cut on an angle most of them not shown, handled the drying quite well, the guest book was one of them, but special care was taken with this one. Not shown only because of the names on the list, forgive me for this, just a privacy issue, but rest assured it is still in tact, and solid.  I will say it is whiteoak on about 45 degree angle, and just beautiful.

Lake Michigan, yea, it's pretty big, we have been there three times now, I really like it there, just not use to the cold, It seems like the cold is colder up there.  I know Levi is ready for some ice fishing, folks up there said it is a blast.

I use a piece of 1/2 in ply wood 16 inches wide and 4 foot long on the bed to set the stump on and a 2x6 or 8 against the side supports and then the 2 plane clamp on my LT40. I cut those thing every spring for my wife's use as she chucks all the ones that she used last year before for various things around our back yard garden.

 

You can see about a dozen or so stepping blocks in the shadow (you have to look close) under the spruce tree by the kitchen deck.
