MIL101G23 From Rough to Ready: Milling Rough Lumber
July, 11 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM MST$151.00
Milling is the process of machining rough lumber to your desired dimensions. Once you learn this process, you’ll be able to select any wood you want and mill it to your own specifications.
Otherwise, you’ll be limited to buying dimensioned lumber, leaving you at the mercy of the lumber yards. So unless you enjoy working with warped and twisted boards, or don’t mind losing thickness off of dimensioned lumber to remove those twists, you will find this a very essential skill to have.
You will learn how to:
- select rough lumber,
- prepare it for milling,
- control for grain orientation and dimensional stability,
- and prepare the lumber for woodworking.
Prerequisite: None. Open to all skill levels.
