Furniture, or firewood
​Lumber, or landfill
What I do...
Tom The Sawyer provides custom sawmilling services throughout the greater Kansas City metro, and NE Kansas.  My clients have many reasons for hiring a sawmill.  Some are property owners who lost a tree due to a storm, pests, or construction; and hated to see that asset end up in a landfill or the fireplace.  Some are woodworkers who realize the value, and variety, that comes from milling, drying, and processing your own lumber.  Whether you have a pile of logs left over from a storm, or just one salvaged from that special tree, I can probably turn it into lumber for you, either at your site or at my home near Eudora, Kansas.

Thank you for visiting my site, hopefully it will provide you with the information you are looking for.  Sawmills are not that common in this area, especially mills that will actually provide on-site milling services.  When I am milling on-site, it is pretty common for passersby to stop and watch, commenting that they never seen a mill in action, if they even knew they existed.  There is a lot of information here related to converting logs into lumber.  My niche in the process is milling logs into lumber suitable for the projects you have in mind.  I don't put out truckloads of dimension/commodity lumber.  I primarily work with 'character' lumber, from logs conventional sawmills would reject.  I don't take trees down, chip brush, grind stumps or split firewood.
I am located at the west edge of Johnson County, Kansas and serve an area including NE Kansas and the Kansas City Metro area - at least 12,000 square miles.  If you are outside my service area there are a number of links on the Resources page that may help you find someone closer to you.  If you have a project in mind but don't have a log, give me a call.  I may be able to find a log suitable for your project.

​Do you have a log but don't need the lumber?  I hate to see logs go to waste, if I can use it I may be willing to haul it away for free.  If you would like to see my mill in operation when I am in your area or would like to see photos of current projects, please visit my Facebook page, or send me an email.
