    Book details

Once you're familiar with Will Malloff's method of chainsaw lumbermaking, you'll be simply and economically turning trees into lumber on your own!

Learn how to select the tree you want, fell it safely, and saw it into a fine pile of building or cabinet lumber. With detailed instructions and over 400 photographs, Will Malloff tells you everything you need to know to turn a chainsaw into a lumbermill, including how to:

  • Modify the chainsaw and make numerous accessories for milling
  • Use the equipment in the woods
  • Grind a smooth-cutting ripping chain
  • Build your own mill from a 2 x 4 and scraps of plywood
  • Cut burls, shape ovals and mill natural knees for boatbuilding

Malloff's method is the fruit of over 30 years' experience of felling trees and making lumber. He's logged everything from giant redwoods to desert mesquite and fulfilled his youthful ambition to fell timber in every major forest of North America. Drawing on this experience, he has invented several chainsaw mills, and perfected the easy, efficient method of chainsaw lumbermaking that he describes in this book.

If you've ever had trouble finding the lumber you need, or wanted to build something with your own trees, Chainsaw Lumbermaking is the book you've been waiting for.

Will Malloff has built a variety of mills and is the designer of what many consider the most effective chainsaw lumbermaking system available. Malloff has spent nearly half a century researching and developing tools and wood technology that minimize ecological impact. In an endeavor to build his own blacksmith shop on a Canadian Pacific island, he invented a state-of-the-art ripping chain, which made chainsaw lumbermaking more feasible and economical than ever before.
