My job at Urban Wood Lab affords me the opportunity to participate in every step of the furniture making process. Last week I milled some oak logs and captured some footage.
Our wood is sourced from every nook and cranny of Milwaukee. These logs are removed for reasons other than their timber value (pests, diseases, etc), and are often burned by other sawyers. Rather than letting it go to waste, we mill and kiln-dry the wood and sell it back into the community.
