Called live edge boards. I operate a big mill, nothing is thrown away. I grind and sell bark, screen and sell sawdust.


your only allowed so many sunrises... I aim to see every one of them!

A lot of people like making furniture out of live edge wood.

Yeah live edge is the hot ticket right now. People will pay way more for a knarley ruff looking slab of wood than nice regular lumber.

We call it wane at the mill and we are allowed so much per board. Other then the knots a lot of those look like #1 boards.

They are harvesting younger trees every year to help fill orders. When I first got I to construction my boss complained about the quality of wood. He would sort through the pile and send back anything he rejected. Mot of what he sent back would be considered #1 or select today.

When I was in the military there was a guy from Iowa I think it was, who drove around looking for abandoned buildings to buy the wood. He only was interested in boards that had vertical siding. Not sure why that was; never asked him. That was in the late 60s.

Last year I cut some board and posts with my Alaskan saw mill to build the chicken coop after I saw the lumber prices. I had one slab 2 1/2 inches thick live edge that had the shape of a bottle as I cut it out of a crotch. The admiral said that she wants to sell that board rough cut as it was. So she took a couple of pictures and sold the darn thing for 700 bucks on day two of posting the pictures online. It was red oak and not properly dried yet. People are crazy

Not the exact board but it was the one I cut out of the crutch of this log. I would have thrown it away and the only reason that I cutie was that I was to lazy to re adjust the mill frame and thought ill do two cuts to get the junk out toad then I'll be back in the useful stuff.

About 1000 board feet of air-dried, 10/4, live-edge walnut I had milled two years ago. The owners were going to chop it up for firewood but didnít have a saw big enough for the main trunk.

About $15,000-$20,000 worth of wood there at current market prices.

Just run it through an edger and you have regular boards.
