Milling waste

Recommended Posts

Is there a market for the 2 “ thick stove size outer sapwood from milling? I quite happily burn it but so far have only sold the usual rounds or quarters. It’s good for chopping into kindling

my brother owns a pottery and he fires his pots in a wood burning kiln and all he uses are slabs from sawmills. It's getting harder to source these days because most mills now chip their slabs for biomass.

I pick up sawmill slab wood in 1.5/2 ton bundles and cut, dry and stack as all my other firewood.

 

It isn't "pretty" like quartered logs but burns fine. If you aren't bothered about this and the price is right you'll move it...my friends and family aren't bothered and so I get rid of a fair bit.

 

Best of luck.

Our local sawmill processes the offcuts into kindling, or sell it by the tractor bucket load for £100.
