when I had my sawmill I would charge an hourly cutting rate because I had several customers that would only want to pay for heartwood width of the boards. for example if we had a 12" wide board but the narrowest part of the heartwood was 2" they only wanted to pay for the 2" wide, but wanted the whole board. Just got easier to use a flat rate. Keep up the great work.

Loved this video, we're thinking about a sawmill and trying to decide the best avenue for us, Alaska chainsaw mill or a Wood Mizer. Very informative.

Wow, what an interview. I really enjoyed that. Just came in the house from mine Lt40hd, its a 1996 model that I picked up after 17 years of sitting unused, after the owner died, only 450 hours on it. 2weeks of cleaning and servicing and she runs like a champ. love the hydraulics because I've had a stroke. Keep the videos coming.

Also to help with checking and warpage there are end sealers that prevent the wood from drying to quickly causing it to bow and bend. I have never personally used it but plan on checking it out or doing more research once I am closer to milling my own lumber. It would be similar to what box stores like home depot do with dipping the ends in a wax type substance. I have noticed once you cut those ends off the boards they can sure twist and turn if they are still moist and dry too quickly say in a warm home or shop.

Josh:  When using full dimension ungraded lumber a 2x4 = 8 sq. inches and a graded 2x6 is 8.25 square inches in cross section.  There for you can use full dimension 2x4's on 24" centers where you would use graded 2x6's for out buildings, uninspected cabins etc.  If it is to be inspected you must use graded lumber.  But make sure  it is wane free and only has solid knots equivalent to #2 SPF for framing.  Still keep to the span charts in the code books but drop one size with full dimension lumber.   In timber frame or pole buildings I still use the graded load size spec. but use full dimension for posts or bigger to allow for notches and mortises .       Bert

Bert, I really appreciate you sharing this. I didn't realize there was so much to lumber and especially how it relates to code.
Bert, That's some great advice and really well said, please keep sharing your insight. Thank you, [email protected]

Cultivating a friendship with a gentleman of that ol fellers caliber can net an education that money cant buy. Found your channel from links from Nick and Ester, I'm thinking ol Nick might also be a gold mine of info. Watching you run equipment I'm thinking you have spilt a bit of coffee on the dash of a machine or two. Take care n have fun Jim
