Portable Sawmilling Workshop and Demonstrations

The LSU AgCenter, in cooperation with LA Tech University, is sponsoring a Portable Sawmilling Workshop and Demonstrations on Saturday, May 13, 2006, at Idlewild Research Station near Clinton, LA. The workshop is designed to provide information to potential portable mill buyers, and to those already using one.

The workshop will include educational programs on buying your first portable sawmill, how to saw logs on a portable sawmill, comparing log scale and lumber tally, and drying small quantities of lumber. After lunch, participants will view demonstrations by various portable sawmill manufacturers.

The registration fee is $15 if received by May 2 and $25 after that. Lunch, refreshments and handouts are included in the fee.
