| Sawmill Tour | Wood Drying | Wood Catalog |
We're working on a "Sawmill Tour" article that will describe the various methods of milling and drying lumber including definitions of quarter sawn, rift sawn, face cut, kiln dried, etc. Look for this article online shortly!
Our goal is to explain the processes that takes wood from the forest to furniture. From massive Georgia Pacific scale outfits to a guy, a truck, and a band saw mill leaves space for dozens of scales, sizes, kilns, automation techniques, and configurations of saws, debarkers, loaders, trucks, lumberjacks and operators. Without all these preliminary steps, hardworking people, and all sorts of machines ... we can't make furniture.
