Milling and stickering the log in situ...

Recommended Posts

Been wanting to try this for ages - if you can leave the log where you are milling it makes a lot of sense to mill it and sticker it as you go [without moving the planks].


This is only a small tree - but even then the system seemed to work well. It also means the log is really well stickered which should mean straighter boards. You would not need a second person to move boards. When you do come to move them they would be ready for use/sale and lighter.


Still go some more tweaking to do on this ie. I want to square each end vertically + debark the out side of the log + seal the ends + spray the outside after the debarking with Borax and seal the sides as well.


Imagine if this worked on a 3ft log?
