The Lucas portable swing-blade sawmill produces everything from 2″x 2″ dimensional lumber up to the super large slabs and beams. Most slabs are “live edge” which just means that the natural edge of the tree is left in-tact. Some have “bow-ties” which are small bow-tie shaped pieces of wood embedded & glued into a natural split to stabilize the piece from further splitting.
Shown below are some of the pieces we’ve built with lumber from the mill and currently have for sale.
Computerized design service is also available for customized table bases and to help you with your planning. Please contact me at email@example.com if you have any questions. The pricing shown may vary depending on the individual piece selected by the customer. Shipping is not included in prices shown below but I can provide delivery and set-up for a reasonable fee.
