Some pictures of yesterday's work...big old redwood that we couldn't move off site without a crane...worked out better to mill on site...often the way with big stuff
 
 
 

Love the set up and great shots of the work.

What’s the mill?
The top bar is in two pieces???
Only two cross bars!
No doubt it works... but I’d be having a chat with@RobD about a panther.
Great work

Hi mate 

It is the granberg alaskan mill with the two sections option...admittedly I was using rails that were full length on this job rather than split in half but still had the support rods in place.

I have the conversation about panther's but haven't come across any issues with the granberg yet 😁

I know a guy that runs double ended milling on a cheap Chinese copy of the alaskan and haven't heard any complaints yet😬😆

I don't post on here much but guess its always good to be knocked around so maybe more content coming up....watch this space😉

That’s character mate!
I get asked for all sorts of mad wood...
Few weeks ago guy wanted rotten slabs which fall apart... to resin back together.
That whole log sold in an hour.

Thats ace! 

 

That last bunch of Oak I milled on my Bandsaw, so 24" wide max. 2" thick and 2.7m long Trailer full of them. Put them on facebay at £120-150 each and got called away. The amount of messaged ive had is unreal. One guy wants 8 of them. Will see how that pans out when I get home, but will be buying a stock if they sell this easily.
