Depending up their length and width they make variety of table tops, interior and exterior walls and even doors. Pioneers did the work with an ax and adz, but a chain saw provides a faster cut.
Round and oval slabs are easy, but a rectangular slab requires more experience in working with a chain saw. When you're felling trees and limbs, you're cutting against the grain. With a sawmill, you are cutting with the grain to create lumber.
The quality of your saw cuts will depend on the type and sharpness of your chainsaw chain. Standard saw chain is designed for speed and cross-cutting, but when it's used with a mill, cuts will be jagged and rough.
Slabs are cut perpendicular to the trunk of large trees, for tables, craft projects and specialty items. They contain no man-made seams, relying solely on the diameter of the tree for size. Slabs vary in thickness from about 3 to 6 inches; they are cut when the tree is still wet. Proper curing and drying prevents the slab from cracking.
