It’s been a long time dream for Graham to have his own sawmill. Now he has one – it’s a Norwood Sawmill and he has spent the last several days putting it together. Want to see his Norwood sawmill in operation? Keep reading….
But first, here is how it looked when it arrived. Some assembly required here! At least it all fit onto one pallet, now to get it home and start putting it together.
Here is his “old” sawmill. This one is called an Alaskan sawmill, another name for a chainsaw sawmill. Although not perfect (and not as pretty as his Norwood) this sawmill cut a lot of boards for us.
It’s how we managed to cut all the siding for our barn and chicken coop. Want to read about how we decided to build a barn?
We did it in two stages – two “halves” is more accurate. It was a great way to spread out the money and time needed to get our barn finished.
And here is the new Norwood sawmill put together. Graham put it on a frame and then onto a trailer so he can move it around the property. It’s looking good and Graham is ready to try his first cuts!
Here’s a video showing the Norwood sawmill running and cutting boards. This sawmill is going to be a great addition here for us.
This year we need to build another garlic curing shed for our garlic operation here at Bradley Creek Garlic Farms. Plus we really need a new wood room to hold a couple of years of firewood.
