Different types of portable sawmills
One of the first sawmills developed was of the circular saw type.
This is a sawmill that uses one or a number of round blades with teeth to make lumber production.
I have a circular sawmill that I use mainly for the making of dimension boards from large logs.

I use a band sawmill to make lumber out of the hardwoods.
I use these boards for the making of finished products.
You can go to this page to get more information on this sawmill.

boards that you want to use for finished products you need to get the moisture
content out of them.
If you are going to
use your lumber for finished projects you will need it planed.
