Northwest Saw can produce dimensional lumber, beams and slabs from your logs. Our modern hydraulic sawmill that can produce hundreds of board feet of lumber per hour and minimize wood loss thanks to its thin-kerf band saw blade design and accurate computerized saw-head controls.
Logs are heavy and difficult to move, often making it more practical to bring a portable sawmill to your property than to transport your logs to a sawmill.
Our hybrid* dry kiln will accept lumber loads up to 2800 board feet to transform your green lumber into dry lumber in a matter of days to weeks (depending on board thickness). We have experience drying not only lumber, but also wood slabs up to 4″ thick and 72″ wide.
With this service, we can pickup your lumber, bring it to our site and return it once its dry.
* Hybrid Dry-Kiln utilizes a dehumidification process that is augmented by a wood-fired furnace and solar energy when the sun is out.
