Introduction to Bandsaw Milling

September 23 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

$50 – $100

*Registration is free for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) community members and MOFGA Journeypersons.

Join professional sawyer Nick Zandstra for a hands-on opportunity to learn about portable bandsaw mills. The course will cover basic mill operation, mill yard layout and techniques to maximize lumber quality while milling logs harvested from the MOFGA woodlot. Please note: Though the course will be taught using a fully-hydraulic Woodmizer mill, the techniques discussed are also helpful for those who plan to use other sawmill brands and more entry-level models.


Our sliding scale registration is designed to make this event as accessible as possible while also covering MOFGA’s costs. The recommended rate is $75 — please pay what feels reasonable for you.
