If you've spent any time clearing rural property of trees, you've faced the question of what to do with all the downed timber. Of all the possible options, what could be better for a DIY guy than milling it into usable lumber? A homemade bandsaw mill is exactly what's needed; these videos should help get you started in the right direction.

This is definitely on my build list. We clear the property for fire mitigation, so we end up with plenty of trees for fuel, and I save the nice ones for future projects. Fir, pine, aspen, and plenty of it.
An example of how strong the fire mitigation mindset is (without being legally necessary): the county does flyovers with small planes, photographs the property, then mails you an aerial photograph of your property with suggested fire mitigation lines marked in red.
