Justin Metcalf's Grist Mill

2013 Personal Best First Place Winner in Small Barns and Sheds, LT40 Hydraulic owner Justin Metcalf

With his Wood-Mizer LT40 Hydraulic, Justin Metcalf’s design-as-you-go grist mill became a reality. "This has been a dream since I was a boy,” said Justin. “Grist mills have always been a great interest to me, as I am a 4th generation miller.” The grist mill was created with 8,500 board feet of hemlock to make up the framing, floors, siding, trim, beams, and grinding mill parts. Additionally, 600 feet of cypress was used to construct the water wheel, 400 board feet of yellow locust adding to the beams, exterior stairs, door locks and latches, and 500 board feet of chestnut oak for the water wheel carriage. Justin sawed 95% of the 10,000 board feet of lumber needed for the project on his Wood-Mizer sawmill. “This would not have been possible, it would not exist, if not for my sawmill,” said Justin. “My sawmill made it possible to fulfill a dream!”
