New (to me) Portable Sawmill

Greetings folks. My name is Nathan I live in Southeast Texas and I recently inherited a Timberking 1400 portable sawmill. Naturally this has increased my interest in woodworking so I decided to join this community. I've managed to slab a few trees and learned a few lessons the hard way.

Welcome to the forum Nathan. Looks like you scored mate. Some nice timber there and future project galore.

I go overboard with every hobby I get involved in.......no exceptions!

Welcome to the forum, Nathan! You're gonna have a great time with that little machine. Do you have a way to dry the wood or will you air dry?

My local sawmill where I get my Walnut has a Wood-Mizer LT-35 and a solar kiln he built. It's a good combo and he travels up to about 125 miles to cut logs for folks.

Right now I've got a dehumidifier and some heat lamps and the fans all in a shipping container and it seems to work all right , but my plan is to build a solar kiln. Right now it's full of pine and red oak they're drying out fairly well.

We used to have a regular poster who made a living from backyard milling and sharpening knives etc. Perhaps his posts are still somewhere on the forum. believe name was Daren Nelson.

I live in the Beaumont area, but the mill spends some time up near Jasper at my in-laws place too.
