That’s a good question, but it’s also very difficult to answer precisely. Why? Because the board feet you cut in a day is affected by many different factors. Some of these are:
Type of mill you’re using. An industrial mill will cut more than a personal mill.
Size of logs you’re cutting. If you have bigger logs, you will get significantly more production.
Thickness and width of boards you’re cutting. If you’re cutting wide, thick boards you’ll have to make fewer cuts to cut up your log. That means you’ll be able to cut more logs in a day.
These variables are the reason we give such a broad range of possible production for each mill. If you are cutting tiny logs into thin strips, you might get production below the range we give. On the other hand, if you’re cutting sizable logs into beams for a barn, your production would likely exceed the figures we give.
