This is a video about the design and use of a chainsaw lumber mill. I designed and made this mill myself in my garage using 3/4" square hollow tube. Thanks for watching
Build article: http://www.ibuildit.ca/Workshop%20Projects/chainsaw-mill.html This arrangement is great for the short log sections that I have and probably wouldn't be a good solution for anything much longer. Here's a followup video answering some of the comments and cutting through a much thicker log: https://youtu.be/y2LsLRI9nsY Ways YOU can help support the work I do in making these videos: Plans for sale: http://www.ibuildit.ca/plans.html Making these videos is expensive and time consuming, and you can help by becoming a supporter of this channel on Patreon.

I built this chainsaw mill from scraps and an old electric motor using a ripping chain and narrow bar. #chainsawmill #sawmill #chainsaw #DIY #homemade #DonnDIY #eestiyoutuber Blueprints available at: https://youshouldbuildit.blogspot.com.ee/p/blueprints.html This is my homemade chain saw mill powered by electric motor. I built it for cutting different sized materials needed in the homestead.

This video shows how I made a DIY chainsaw sawmill. It is not for cutting large amounts of lumber. I just wanted to get a few planks to turn into stock every once in a while. For entertainment only. I got the idea from Travis on Your Home Workshop channel. I just modified it a bit.
Support us on Patreon: http://bit.ly/2tdla40 When we first started milling lumber, we thought we'd try a homemade chainsaw mill. It did do the job, we milled up five 8' sections of tree and then built the framework of a 16x16 foot deck with it. However, as we plan on building a timber frame barn and house, we wanted something that was a little more precise, a little more sturdy (or a lot more sturdy), a little more safe, and a little more professional. Enter the Granberg chainsaw mill. In this video we'll try out the Granberg mill for the first time. We will do a lot of chainsaw milling this spring, summer and fall so stay tuned for updates and more technical videos where we'll talk about the best chains, more comparisons to a homemade version, and how to find-tune your mill.
