This is an article about someone making their own sawmill. It's about the process rather than exact instructions since the guy pretty much winged it. I thought some folks might find it interesting.

On "Homestead Rescue" or one of the other shows, there is an attachment for a chainsaw that will turn it into a sawmill.
