Our saw is this Woodmizer LT 40 horizontal bandsaw. It has a 26.5 horsepower motor and many nice features for ease of use and accuracy, including a hydraulic loading unit that can lift a 3,000-pound log onto the saw bed, hydraulic clamps to hold the work in place, and a digital readout to set blade height and plank thickness. It also has a blade tensioning gauge, a real improvement over our first saw. It’s theoretically portable, but we have it set up as a stationary machine under a beautiful shade structure built by our friends at Barrows Fencing and Gates.

We have invested heavily in sound abatement to keep our neighbors happy and we plan to do more.

What we cut: Our current saw has a maximum plank width of 34.5 inches and we can cut up to 20’ long. 

Most of what we cut is from our own log inventory, but we are always ready to do custom milling if you bring a log or thick plank to us. The second photo is an alligator juniper log custom milled for Ulibarri Construction.

 Most of our planks are cut 2” or 2 ¼” but if you have special size requirements, you can choose a log and we can custom mill from about 5/16” thickness up.
