Transportation of raw material to our mill.
Delivery of claro walnut logs to our sawmill located in Grass Valley CA. The 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″ electric bandsaw mill. The wood from this highly figured claro walnut log 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 sealed the ends of the log to prevent premature drying. The slab pictured below measures: 3″ thick by 42″ to 46″ wide by 10′ long.
