New (to me) Portable Sawmill
 
I inherited a sawmill from my uncle, it sat for a few years but was never used beyond the demo when he bought it. I've cut some pine, pecan, and red oak with some success, but in my opinion the coolest I've cut so far is a piece of driftwood (species unknown). Here are some pictures, and I'll attempt a cell phone video.

That is some INCREDIBLE wood! You have yourself a gold mine there. Please keep the pics coming.

Lots of unique and awesome wood there. Good luck with it in the future. Sure looks like you have figured out the sawmill.

Pretty cool piece of driftwood! I want a mill bad.

I've always wanted a mill but just cant justify the cost. I have to admit that is some cool looking wood. Especially the driftwood...

Thanks guys. I'll definitely post more pictures as they come. I've got a pretty significant stash of pine 4x6 that my uncle is going to use for exposed beams in a house he is building, I also have a couple of black walnut logs, more red oak than I know what to do with, and one log that is supposedly white oak but I'm a little suspicious its only red.
