KNOT FARMS SAWMILL AND WOOD MILLING SERVICES
Knot Farm is a local professional wood Sawmill, the operation is run by Jim MacDonald owner and Sawer, with the support and permission of his wife Jennifer.
Knot Farm has a selected blend of old and new equipment to provide saw milling and lumber processing services. At the heart of the operation is a TimberKing 2000 hydraulic band saw mill. There are 2 basic kinds of sawmills, Circular mills that are usually stationary with thick spinning blades that chew through logs, and band saw mills that slice through logs. The TimberKing 2000 can lift logs off the ground onto the saw bed and rotate, clamp it and with the computer controls cut every board off the log the same thickness. Because the TimberKing 2000 is a band sawmill it produces a smooth cut with minimal waste wood. This high tech hydraulic sawmill machine was used produce framing and siding lumber to build the buildings at Knot Farm. You can learn more about the mill and what it can produce throughout our website.
