Preparing rough sawn timber

    Afternoon gents
    I am in the fortunate position of having access to trees (mostly ash, some elm, some cherry) through my work which I have milled into rough sawn boards using my Alaskan mill. I have noticed paul has mentioned using machines to prepare rough stock to the correct size and ready for joinery work. I am wandering what machines he uses for this and what people would recommend, machines and brands etc. I am only looking at machines for stock prep and not actual shaping and joinery.
    Regards Rob Davies

    That’s a great idea. I’m normally milling down logs into 1.5″ to 2″ planks when I screw the plywood to it – and that is only to get one side relatively flat. I like your concept though – I will have to give that a try.
