Our specialties are rough sawn lumber, posts and beams, and unique flooring. Logs from the trees we cut are transported back to the sawmill and turned into beautiful rustic boards.
Here are some photographs and videos showing the process of turning logs into lumber. For more information and pricing, please visit www.markhamlumber.com .
A load of sawlogs arrives at the mill and is loaded onto the skidway. After the log is "dogged" onto the carraige, the sawyer passes it through the headsaw. After turning the log three times, a sized "cant" is made and is finally sawn into boards or beams. The photo on the right shows a load of pine beams ready for delivery to Ipswich, MA for a new barn. These beams were made from pine trees harvested at the site of the barn.
