Starting at about 10:30 on a sunny Friday morning, the first piece tackled was an eight-foot-long, 30" diameter white oak log. The hydraulic arms of the portable saw mill quickly moved the trunk onto the saw carriage. Having decided to quarter-saw this particular piece, Jeff Tervol, the sawyer, began to work magic with his 40 h.p. band saw. Soon he was pushing beautiful, clear boards off the log.
