I run a small portable bandmill service for southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. I have competitive rates, and as long as you dont mind getting your hands dirty I would love for you to join in on the action. It is a great learning experience and great feeling, knowing that you took your next project from tree to heirloom. I work hard to get the most out of your logs and will go into great detail, if desired, in explaining the milling process from first-cut to finish-drying with tips and techniques. I also go over different types of sawing for figure and/or stability. I love to uncover the true hidden beauty of wood; the stuff you cannot find at the big box stores.

Manual Bandmill, no hydraulics. 36" max log diameter, 30" max cut width. 12ft max log length unless specified. With bed extension can cut 20ft.

Timber Beast Sawmilling offers portable sawmilling and lumber sales to the Wisconsin and the U.P. area.  We have experience cutting a wide variety of dimensions and jobs.  Our Woodmizer LT 40 Super Hydraulic Mill will lift the logs onto the mill and turn them into position for sawing.  We can handle logs as wide as 3 feet diameter with a 22 inch wide cut at the blade.  Logs can range from 4 feet to 20 feet long. 

We charge $55 an hour with an average cutting rate of 200-250 board feet an hour cutting 4/4 lumber.  Speed of cutting varies depending on the species and size of logs.  (These numbers can be obtained only if you provide 1-2 helpers to offload the lumber from the mill.  We can sometimes provide 1 off loader at a rate of $15 per hour.)

Timber Beast Sawmilling can come to you and mill at your site or you can haul your logs to our place.  If you haul your logs to us we charge $0.20 per board foot ($200 per thousand bd/ft).
