Building your own chainsaw mill from scratch to accommodate your bar and powerhead is a great way to produce lumber from logs. Milling this way is a versatile and low cost entry point to logging and yields slabs and rough cut boards to your own dimensions. ++++++Plans+++++ PLANS: https://sowl.co/3Q3qL +++++Playlists+++++ CHAINSAW MILL: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9d6LkFNP1fEZJRdP42NwHBYVBbtSWEGF SHAPER: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9d6LkFNP1fEdw-SPCSIUX8NP0x8McHtW LATHE: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9d6LkFNP1fGjdW2RxqSHdSO9D1FEl36c +++++Resources+++++ Below you'll find my affiliate links.

If you aren't modeling your parts before fabrication, you really should be. It is invaluable to "build" things in software prior to building them in the shop. You can iterate your assembly details many times yet not add mass to your scrap bin. If you don't feel like tackling the software on your own, I highly recommend Mike Moyer's course [Fusion 360 For Hobbyists and Woodworkers](http://mikeandlauren.thinkific.com/courses/fusion-360-for-hobbyist-and-woodworkers?ref=ff6910). If you buy the course using this link, I will send you the Shaper model and the Ram Facing Illustration model.
