Must Watch! Sawmill Lumber Kiln Drying Secrets (#1 Best for Woodworking!)-HHA

Welcome to Hobby Hardwood Alabama – a real, professional sawmill lumber production business, ranked by a national website as producing the highest quality wood in Alabama, of about 45 different species. We are not a video company, but we are a real lumber company, and want to show others some of our money making and business sawmill techniques. This video is another example of sawmilling for our business, Hobby Hardwood, Alabama. We show how we mill logs, dry them and other things on our outdoor farm. We use our amazing fleet of hardware and tools, such as our custom New Holland Tractor, Wood-Mizer LT-70 sawmill, as well as our Cantek planers, Baker edgers, and SLR machines in action, operation, milling and while sawing logs to lumber. The Woodmizer LT Super 70 sawmill is the the biggest, fasted and most automatic bandsaw mill Woodmizer makes, with joystick control and Diesel engine. Very few sawmills are this fast, including Baker, Morgan, Harbor Freight, Cooks, Northern, Timber King, Norwood, Woodland, chainsaw mill, and Hudson. It’s the fastest and most modern band mill Wood-Mizer makes, and produces the best lumber wood for wood working projects and our lumber business. We also showcase our Nyle Kilns and air drying lumber techniques. Lots of tips and tricks to make sawing and drying easier for beginners and professional woodworkers to keep our sawmill turning trees and logs into gold instead of firewood. My buddy, Nathan Elliot, of Out of the Woods Sawmill, OTW, convinced me I needed to start filming our operation, so here goes. Someday I want to have as many followers as other sawmill videos on Youtube, like Nathan and Outdoors With the Morgans. We show how to make money with your sawmill, and pass on our how-to tips and tricks for better sawmilling. Watch us use our sawmill, chainsaw mill, band saw, and bandsaw.

    I’ve tried to air dry ponderosa, and no matter how dry my stickers are, they still leave a blue stain, any suggestions?

    Great video

    You are a credit to your profession sir. I just gave up on woods like pecan and sycamore years ago. Takes knowledge and the right tools to tame that stuff. 👍

    How and why are stickers grooved?

  7. Nathan Casey on May 11, 2023 at 10:50 am

    Thank you so much for the video and information. Very thankful for you. what are you using for weights? it looks like granite

    Also how long does it take hardwood to dry from 12%MC to 8% ( hardwood) in your kiln set up.

    Another outstanding video. Well produced and very informative. Thanks for taking the time to make these. I know it must really slow down production.

    Hello from Romania 🇷🇴
    What tipe of energy use you’re kilns?
    There is ventilation inside ?
    I’m interested in cost and amount of energy/kiln in one operational shift
    Thank you kindly

    I’m like you and have an engineering degree (TTU-BSME)/ semiretired and I’ve been hoping that you would showcase a video on your wood kiln(s) and how you constructed both of them. I’m really interested in your Nile unit and what would be the estimated cost to construct this unit today in your opinion. I’ve got an LT40 and live about 30 miles NE of Knoxville, TN and live on a family farm.

    I just cut down a walnut tree would it be better to mill when green or a year or two when it’s dry?

  14. john woody on May 11, 2023 at 11:13 am

  15. Bricks & Slabs on May 11, 2023 at 11:16 am

    Do you have any info on the kiln Drying Scheduals? I am in the process of learning my own homemade kiln & its works really well… just have to figure out temps and water collection amounts each day…. I am so lost in this aspect. Any help would be much appreciated.
