2013 Personal Best Second Place Winner in Small Barns and Sheds, LT15 owner Robin Graham
When several tornadoes came through Alabama, it left a trail of downed trees. Not wanting to see this resource go to waste, Robin Graham purchased a Wood-Mizer LT15 sawmill and began milling the logs into usable lumber. Two years after milling the wood to dry, Robin started construction on a boathouse using about 3,600 board feet of white oaks, cedar and cherry. In eight months, Robin had built a boathouse measuring 32’ x 30’ with an 18’ x 20’ upper deck and 140’ of walkways and stairs leading to the water. Robin estimated he saved about $20,000 by using his LT15. “Being able to design the boathouse, then cut, mill, and prepare the wood has provided a great sense of personal satisfaction and accomplishment,” said Robin.
