New sawmill/live edge boards on the way!

Well its that time of year again.  The calls are coming in and appointments are getting booked for tree removal quotes and jobs.  Call, email or text to set up a free quote.

Also with the warmer weather comes new live edge slabs and boards.

We are in the process of purchasing a new sawmill that will allow for the custom cutting of live edge boards, and the production of lumber.  This mill can produce 10' long boards at a maximum width of 22".  The advantage of this new mill will be smoother slabs and boards requiring much less effort in the process of smoothing the surface of the wood for finishing.   Where the chainsaw mill would leave a chatter on the board, requiring additional sanding and planing, this bandsaw mill will produce an smooth, consistent surface.

We will be up and going with the mill in the coming weeks, and will have undried boards available within the month.  Dry boards will take a bit longer as they will be sent to the kiln.

If there is a certain species of wood your looking for to complete your DIY project, let me know and I'll do my best to accommodate.  Also if you would like your name added to our mailing list for future releases of live edge wood, please let me know.

Thanks and in the words of football genius Ed Woodward, "watch this space".

Tree removal w/ bucket truck

Earlier this week we removed a large black walnut tree from a residence in Kitchener near St Mary's hospital.  This tree extended over houses, sheds and fences.  It required the bucket truck to safely and efficiently bring it down. 

In 3 hours we had created quite the mess on the ground, but the tree was safely down. 

Here are some photos showing the removal stages.

Black walnut slabs available

This Friday was my first attempt using my new chainsaw saw mill. With very little set up time we were able to get our first log set up with the levelling bars, and make our first level cut to prepare the log for more cuts to come. 

The 4-5' lengths of walnut were cut into 2" slabs, all containing a live edge and a beautiful rich dark grain. 

These pieces will need some time to cure and dry but they are available for sale in the mean time to anyone interested.  

I've provided some sample photos. Please contact me if your interested.  
Thanks!
