California Claro walnut logs delivered to our mill in Grass Valley CA.
The massive claro walnut log on the front of the trailer weighed 6 1/2 tons and measured over 6 feet in diameter. We used a Stihl 090 chainsaw to prepare the log for milling on our 48″ Linn electric bandsaw mill. All of our wood is air dried for a minimum of 3 to 5 years prior to being offered for sale. The walnut from these highly figured claro walnut logs will be used in the creation of musical instruments, furniture, high-end accessories as well as restocking collectible firearms.
Our custom horizontal bandsaw mill cuts 48″ wide and will rise to a height of 48″. The mill runs on a 10 horse power electric motor as it glides through this California claro walnut log. We seal the ends of the log to prevent premature drying. The slab pictured below measures: 3″ thick by 42″ to 46″ wide by 10′ long.
