Timber is cut into boards to allow it to "season", which is to dry out, and we do this using either our Woodmizer LT40, which is fast and efficient for smaller logs up to about 650mm diameter or our Forestor 180, which can saw logs up to 1800mm diameter. When a tree is growing and even after it has been cut down it is described as "green", which means that it contains a great deal of moisture, which must be removed before the timber is stable enough to use for furniture or interior joinery.
We are happy to saw your own logs for you and you can take the timber away to season. It is generally not economic to saw logs which are less than about 1m long and less than about 250mm in diameter.
In addition to our general machining services we are able to offer Extra Wide Planing.
Milling your Timber
In addition to sawing logs in our yard we are able to offer our modern and efficient Woodmizer LT40 saw milling service to you so that we can convert your timber for you, here, at our Emborough Sawmill. If you are unable to bring your logs into our yard we may be able to arrange timber haulage for you. If you only have a small amount of timber, it may be more economic to bring the logs to our yard and we can saw it for you here.
If you have some felled timber which you would like to use for fencing or construction materials, or perhaps you would like to make an item of furniture to remember a favourite tree from your garden, we can quote to convert the log into something use-able for you. Planked timber once planked is easier to store and to handle.
