Making flooring with a band saw!
Here’s a rare peek at Merv using his large band-saw mill to make Flooring.
You have to start somewhere, so he takes a slice off the top first.
He cuts the boards wide enough to allow for shrinkage during the drying process… and to acommadate for planing after it is kiln dried. This is the butternut being milled.
The bigger the tree, the wider the planks you can get.
Yes, Merv has been known to smile on occasion!
