    Small Wood Mill?

    I lost a big water oak with a almost 40' straight section to it. I'm in 70123. Is there anywhere within a reasonable distance that would come for it and be able to let it dry out and mill it? It's about 6' in diameter at the narrow end.

    If nobody comes to get it for milling, I'd love to cut a 2 or 3" thick piece off of it to work with some resin and make a nice large table with it

    I'll keep you in mind if I end up just getting it removed. I'm River Ridge.

    I had a huge sycamore tree uproot and fall from my neighborís yard. I finished delivering the choice sections to a friend and Iím promised a nice set of bowls.
    Times like these make me wish I had a bandsaw mill.

    I could ride around my neighborhood and aquire enough grade A wood to supply furniture making for the next 20 years.
    Chances are every ounce of it is going to be put through a wood chipper.

    Ever thought of buying a portable sawmill? I think it could quickly pay for itself. A couple of buddies and I are looking at one. We can't individually justify it but with three of us investing, it will probably work. Here's one of the ones we are looking at:

    If that log is 6' in diameter at the small end you don't need a small saw mill, you need a large saw mill.

    I agree! 6í diameter is over 18-3/4 feet in circumference! Thatís a pretty big log. How large is the big end?
