Eugene, Oregon (PressExposure) February 14, 2009 -- Gia Carrozzi, expert sawyer and owner of True Cut Custom Milling in the heart of Humboldt County, will demonstrate her New Portable sawmill at the Oregon Logging Conference February 19-21, 2009. Gia will discuss and demonstrate her portable sawmill to people who are interested in buying a portable mill. They can get a close-up look, and even try it out themselves to see what it's like, and if it's right for them.
Gia has been a custom miller and sawyer for more than 12 years. She specializes in custom projects and in recycling old growth redwood that was left on the forest floor. She enjoys teaching others about custom milling, her portable sawmills, and the challenges of working with giant tree trunks and recycled wood.
Unlike most millers who have just one mill, or two at most, Gia already has three sawmills, two of them portable mills. She will be at the Oregon Logging Conference to collect her fourth mill, a portable mill called the Baker Blue Streak. Her new mill will allow her to do onsite jobs for clients more easily and also re-saw larger slabs into much smaller pieces.
Gia Carrozzi: Most people in my industry have one mill, or maybe two, but not four. People ask me if Iâm going to get rid of one, but no, they have all different purposes. They all do different things.â
Gia Carrozzi: âOne of the biggest advantages of the Baker Blue Streak is that it will produce much less waste than my other mills. I mostly work with very expensive wood, and reducing the amount of sawdust by more than 65% will mean a huge increase of value per log.â
While she is at the Oregon Logging Conference, Gia will be available to talk about her work, her three other mills, and mills in general. And, of course, she will demonstrate her new portable mill, the Baker Blue Streak, and allow interested conference attendees to try it out.
Gia Carrozzi: âThis is a rare opportunity for millers and sawyers to get some first-hand experience with this kind of portable mill. Itâs huge and can turn tree trunks into boards and smaller pieces.â
Gia Carrozzi: âThese mills are a significant investment, so being able to talk to someone who works with them day in and day out will be valuable. And best of all, theyâll get to see a portable mill close-up and in action, and they can even try it out themselves to discover what thatâs like. This will really help them decide if a sawmill is right for them, and of so, which one.â
