After seeing George Vondriska’s demonstration at Weekend with WOOD titled “Logs to Lumber” I’ve been noticing more and more tree trimming happening in my neighborhood. And by “noticing more and more” I mean simply, I’m starting to get the itch a little to try my hand at sawing my own lumber from local fallen trees.
I only have a 14″ bandsaw, but that’s the perfect size for cutting up some of the smaller tree trunks I see laying around waiting for someone to claim them for firewood.
According to George, and you’ll see some of this in the clips to come soon from my trip to Weekend with WOOD, you can accomplish the job rather easily with a simple homemade sled on your own bandsaw. But if you’re like me, and I know some of you are…when you see a manufactured jig that can do something similar and save you time and maybe a few white knuckle moments, you’re all over it.
Imagine my surprise when I took a look at the latest product video Morton put together for the Highland Woodworking YouTube Channel?! This time around Morton is demonstrating the Carter Log Mill a pretty sweet looking jig for doing exactly what I saw demonstrated by George at the conference.
While it looks like the size of logs the Carter Log Mill can handle seems a little limited (then again I haven’t tried it out yet) it still looks like a great little tool to try it out with.
I’d be curious to hear from anyone who owns one as to how they like it. Leave a comment below or email me!
