Introduction to Portable Sawmilling

September 26 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm EDT

Join professional sawyer Nick Zandstra for a hands-on opportunity to learn about portable bandsaw mills. The course will cover basic mill operation, mill yard layout and techniques to maximize lumber quality while milling hardwood and pine logs harvested from the MOFGA woodlot.

Please note: Though the course will be taught using a fully-hydraulic Woodmizer mill, the techniques discussed are also helpful for those who plan to use other sawmill brands and more entry-level models. Please bring a lunch.

$100; $75 MOFGA members.

REGISTER HERE.
