Cool set up, that’s sure to keep you and your brother busy sawing up a ton of trees, good luck with it.

This thing is awesome so far we have cut up a few hundred board ft of oak, cedar, pecan, and walnut and we only have 3hrs on the machine.
I've done some work at several sawmills in East Texas and Louisiana and they had special jigs to sharpen the blades. Does Woodland sell a jig accessory to sharpen the blade?

I'm sure your wife will love the addition of the trailer ... now the sawdust can be somewhat evenly spread all over your yard!

One can dream to have their own mill one day. Looking forward to some cool DIY threads.

If you ever need more wood and want to make it out to La Grange you’re more than welcome to come get whatever you want. I’m about to get rid of 60 ac of oak and cedar.

Dumb question, but how long does the wood have to dry before it can be milled? If I cut down a pecan, and I want to board it out, can it be milled immediately, and then dried, or dry then mill? I have been wanting to do this for a while, but I'm not sure where I would store wood for drying.

It can be milled immediately but it will need to then been dried. The average is about 1 year per inch of thickness.

Where I am on the coast the lumber won't ever make it down to 6-8%(where I want it to build furniture) so it will need to be kiln-dried. Air-dried lumber here will be at 10-14%.

When your ready to cut it down let me know. You are not too far out of the way to the ranch.

Building a Kiln is on the list!

Beautiful wood!

Put lots more stickers between those stacked boards though, they may get wavy with few stickers as they dry. Flat , heavy weight on top of the stacks helps to keep them straight too.
