How does the tree that was cut down become the lumber that was used to build the Flour Mill’s building? Visit the Saw Mill south of the Feature Building to see. The Saw Mill can be run by any tractor with a belt pulley, but is usually seen powered by a steam engine. From removing the bark off the tree to cutting the tree into the rough plank construction lumber that can be purchased at a home improvement store, this saw mill does it all.
Anyone wishing to have some lumber milled is welcome to bring it in before the show. There is no charge for this service, but a free-will donation to the show for maintenance and upkeep is greatly appreciated. Please contact Mick Sundblad at (712) 299-1078 prior to the show.
