This is Steve Potts. He lives and works around Point Reyes, California. He makes slabs and other custom cuts of specialty wood for clients who want to add a rustic touch to their home or business. He does his milling various ways including using this Lucas Sawmill. Below Steve is milling Black Acacia -- beautiful wood.
Below is a big Cypress log he ripped with one of his chain saws. The cuts are straight as an arrow.
He rips using a simple guide that slides along the side of a 2X8 that is attached to the top of the log.
Here is another big Cypress log he ripped with his chain saw.
The heavy slab below is destined to be a counter top at a winery.
This mantle top and side shelf is made from a slab of Jeffery pine Steve cut.
