It makes no difference what species of logs you want me to cut, the pricing is the same.

 Miscellaneous fees to be aware of

 1. Traveling fee:  45 cents/mile calculated round trip from Raymond, WA. + bridge tolls, ferry tickets.

 2. Stickers:  $35 to cut a small log into stickers.  I usually take a small log and cut 1/2" x1/2" x 8 foot stickers.

 3.  $50 when a blade hits metal in your log.

 4.  $50 to move mill to another location to continue cutting.

 5. $90/hr chainsaw.

 6.  $120/hr Excavator.

7. Hired helper $30/hr (mainly for unloading your lumber and stacking/stickering).  If you want to pull lumber yourself you can save this fee and get some good exercise!


If a 2x4 is cut to 1.5” x 3.5”, price will be calculated as 2” x 4”.  The same applies to all other dimensional lumber.

Length of boards is measured to the nearest inch.

The sawyer will cut whatever logs the customer places on the mill.  If a log is old and rotten, it is still charged the same rates as fresh logs since the time, labor effort, machinery wear and fuel consumption are all the same.
