My business, though small, is all about timber, lumber, and furniture. The sawmill allows me to gain a lift over ten-fold more than the market value of the timber stumpage.

Every two years, Wood-Mizer, the industry leader in portable and industrial sawmills, holds a national contest for more than 40,000 customers to find sawmill businesses that truly are a cut above the rest.
Hamsley Forestry won first place in the category for businesses running Wood-Mizer’s manual sawmill equipment. The business was featured in The Wood-Mizer Way, a leading magazine for the portable and industrial sawmilling industry with circulation of 40,000+.
Owner Danny Hamsley, a registered Forester, started sawing his own lumber in 2002 to expand on his furniture building hobby. He began selling some of the extra lumber he was producing, and was surprised at the interest from local woodworkers. He developed a plan to retire and focus on sawing and selling hardwood lumber locally.
His business involves harvesting trees from his own acreage, sawing each log up one-by-one, drying the lumber, and then either selling it, or building furniture for sale.
