So I've mentioned that my dad has a sawmill, and I thought I'd give him some space here. He owns a mobile sawmill and woodcraft shop in Milton, WV, making furniture, crafts, and wooden dulcimers and psalteries. So, what is a mobile sawmill?
The log is strapped to the black metal base and the saw (seen at the other end) runs horizontally on rails down it's length, creating board lumber.
I thought I'd post some pics of all the things he creates from that lumber.
|He made this dining room table and side bench.|
|Dulcimers and Psalteries, he even made the bows!|
|A fishing rod holder.|
|Bark silhouettes created from the slab of bark cut from a log while it's being squared off.|
Since he has retired, he spends most of his time out in the woodshop, making all of these fabulous works of art. He's been known to make a gun stalk or two, even caskets! Basically, if you can dream it up, dad will find a way to build it. If you want to see more, check out his Facebook page at Tooth and Nail!
