Nothing like having friends with cool toys. And what better toy to have than your own saw mill? Well I suppose this isn't so much of a toy to my friend Danny as it is a much needed tool to run his business - either way it is awesome.
Able to take logs up to 20" in diameter this beast runs along a track and is gas powered. this means if you could trek it in to the woods and set up a track you could build a log cabin anywhere you have a flat service - I dream of the possibilities.
Danny had some pine logs drying for close to a year when I approached him with a need for some rough cut lumber for my platform bed project and he was happy to help cut some up to help in making of a real bed for me.
If I had the room, the access to big logs and space to store them while they aged I would be all over something like this - for now, its good to have friends.
