Saw Milling at our Emborough Sawmill
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, if you drop them off by appointment and you collect and take your 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. Email us photos of your log/logs with sizes and quantities and we will look at feasibility, costs and lead-times.
We cannot saw your log while you wait, please ask about lead-times.

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.
We saw it for you and you take it away and dry it.
You drop off your logs by appointment and collect by appointment when your timber is ready.
We cannot saw you log while you wait, please ask about lead-times.
We 'do not' offer mobile saw milling services.
We 'do not' offer kilning services or Air Drying services.
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 for you to bring the logs to our yard.
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.
Email us for a 'price estimate' and to see if we are able to offer milling services to you.
