Three more solid ash wooj tables roughed out with the chainsaw mill on another sunny day in the woods.
Milled from a large ash log where it fell across a fairly steep bank (steeper than it looks in the video) then cross cut to height. The chainsaw mill is perfect for low impact processing of timber. No vehicles, no heavy machinery, not even a heavy horse, just what can be carried in and out on foot.
The chainsaw mill is a simple device that fits to the bar of the saw allowing the log be squared off or cut into boards. Pretty much everything I make starts off in this way. The next stage will be cross cut to the final height and shape the front face, currently covered in bark. Then it’s ready to plane followed by a lot of sanding….
If you’d like one of these they’ll soon be available in the online shop.
