Get a hands-on experience with a new prototype sawmill with a log capacity of 30 to 40 inches in diameter, and length up to 75 feet. We will discuss all sorts of sawmills, get a copy of the Sawmill and Woodlot Management magazine, discuss important factors in having a sawmill, and work up a couple of logs. If you have a log sitting around that you want turned into boards, throw it in the truck and c’mon out.  Sponsored by the Marion-Polk Chapter of the Oregon Small Woodlands Association (OSWA).

Directions: about 30 miles west of Salem and about 4 miles past Willamina. Take Hwy 22 west from Salem about 27 miles to the Willamina Jct. Go straight through and continue toward the coast on a divided highway another 3 miles to exit 25. Take the exit and a right at the stop, up and over the overpass and down to a T on Yamhill River Rd. Take a left and go 1/2 mile to Gold Creek Rd., which is a right, over a concrete bridge. Go (1) one mile up Gold Creek Rd. to the first forest on your right, then along those woods for 1000 ft and a right just past a small bridge over Gold Creek. Watch for 6955 on the mailbox and an OSWA sign to follow in.
