A.J. Corley • Odenville, AL • LT15 • 100% of lumber cut on mill • $4,000 estimated saved
A.J. cut more than 5,000 board feet of pine on his LT15 to build this small cabin. “It makes me feel good knowing that we were able to salvage this material, from logs that were heading in the landfill, and turn them into something useful that will be enjoyed for many years to come.”
“Our customers wanted a rustic look with the functionality of a modern building, and we were able to hit the nail on the head with this one. This cabin turned out totally awesome. Every piece of wood came off our LT40 Super from locally removed trees that were destined for a mulch pile."
James Wagandt • Ellicott City, MD • LT10 • 95% of lumber cut on mill
"A mining claim inside the Rio-Grande national forest had been in my family for generations and the inaccessibility of the location provided a challenge that interested me." Three years later, James completed his 22' X 32' cabin out of 7,200 board feet of douglas fir, ponderosa pine, and Colorado blue spruce. "This project would not have been possible without my Wood-Mizer, because I could not have hauled lumber to the site.”
Joe used his LT10 to cut more than 4,000 board feet of oak and pine to build a cabin for his family. "After seeing a lot of old cabins during a trip to the mountains of Virginia, we wanted one of our own. It was a lot of hard work, but now we have a place for the family to stay and play."
Using simple framing and board and batten construction, Joe built this 10' X 16' cabin from 1,500 board feet of yellow pine and red cedar in just two months. Joe found that, "Being able to cut accurate dimensions and very thin boards," was a helpful feature of his LT15. "I'm always amazed at seeing my projects go from raw logs to finished structures."
"In the '80s I started dreaming about a wood house after seeing one in a magazine. After seeing how beautiful and diversely each board being cut from a Wood-Mizer came out, I had to make this dream come true. I haven't had much that I can call mine in my life, but now I feel like I am lucky to have such a beautiful and unique wood home."
Charles Silfee • Analomink, PA • LT15 • 50% of lumber cut on mill
"[A timber frame room] was something I always wanted to build and challenge myself with. This was my first time building one." Charles built this 18' X 24' family room with a combination of eastern white pine and hemlock. When asked about the completion of his first timber frame success, Charles praised the ability of his LT15 to cut logs at 24' of length.
