Here's a video by San Juan Carpentry in Colorado, cutting lumber with a band saw mill. I have a mill just like it, but these guys move a little faster than I do! The mill is a great way to salvage lumber and get exactly the dimensions and type of cut you want.

Built my own

Yeah, these manufactured mills are fast, but on the other hand I built mine for 1100 us dollars in 2009. If you are curious here is my video link:

Either way, if you buy one or build one, everyone loves having the power to knock out your own boards!! And thanks for sharing the post.

I've watched your video numerous times and was always impressed by it. It's a great workout for the amount of money invested. They only "disadvantage" is that it 5takes a bit of floor space, but it could be easily disassembled and stored for those times when it's needed for milling.
Nice to see you here. :yes:
