The family-owned and operated L. Garbers & Sons Sawmill in Northwest Ohio was established in 1997 by Luther and Kathryn Garbers and their two sons David and Marty. What started out as a side business with a portable sawmill has grown into a full-time operation with a high-production industrial sawmilling system producing pallet material, cut stock, blocking, and grade lumber in Wauseon, Ohio. L. Garbers & Sons Sawmill During the formative years of the business, Luther, David and Marty both farmed and worked separate full-time jobs so they were only able to help their father at the mill on weekends and holidays, but their interest in sawing started at a young age. “We both love sawing lumber and it’s a joy to run the mill,” said David. “It all started when we were kids running our grandfather’s mill. We’ve grown up with it in our blood.” When Luther passed away in 2002 and farming profits started to decline, the brothers turned their focus to sawmilling and began working full-time at the family mill. “Our dad always told us to produce quality material and you will always have work,” said David. “That’s been true and we’ve held to that since the start.” In addition to having decades of experience running sawmill equipment, L. Garbers & Sons has relied on Wood-Mizer equipment for more than 20 years to produce accurate, consistent material by maintaining thickness, reducing waves or variation, and minimizing wane. “We’ve always received comments about the quality and consistency of our material and Wood-Mizer contributes a great deal to our quality,” said Marty. “The quality of how they construct their mills and their engineering help you maintain your production as well as your quality of cutting.” In addition to providing quality material, L. Garbers & Sons has grown throughout the decades by sawing a variety of material and taking smaller jobs to get their foot in the door with a potential for securing larger jobs with clients. For example, the business entered the pallet board business by first doing trailer planking for a trucking company who eventually started a steel coil shipping business and contracted all pallet work to L. Garbers & Sons. “If one product is a little slower, another product will pick up,” said David. “We try to keep our eggs in different baskets.” The business processes and sells material to a range of clients including pallet stock to the pallet industry, blocking to the railroad and steel industry, and grade lumber to clients throughout Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Missouri. Upgrading to a WM4500 Industrial Sawmilling System While L. Garbers & Sons has remained flexible to produce whatever the market demands, one constant has been operating with Wood-Mizer sawmilling equipment. The company started with a Wood-Mizer LT40 hydraulic portable sawmill before securing a large contract for producing pallet stock. This led to an upgrade to an LT40 super hydraulic portable sawmill to meet production demands. After more than 1 ½ million board feet on the LT40 super portable sawmill in just a few years, the operation upgraded again to an LT300 sawmill – Wood-Mizer’s largest industrial mill at the time. Sixteen years later, the company operates today with an industrial sawmilling system that includes a Wood-Mizer WM4500 sawmill, EG400 board edger, and material handling equipment. They also maintain their own blades on-site with Wood-Mizer blade sharpening and setting equipment. “The WM4500 was huge for us, kind of like a present for paying our dues and working our way up,” said David. The installation of the WM4500 was completed in approximately three days and David and Marty were both trained by Wood-Mizer technicians how to operate the new machinery. “What I like most about the WM4500 is the powered toeboard rollers,” said Marty. “It is much nicer shifting the log back and forth on the deck how you want and the dual chain turners are able to handle the logs so much easier.” L. Garbers & Sons fits their sawmill equipment with Wood-Mizer Turbo 7 blades. “We’ve always had the best results with Wood-Mizer blades. We are running the 2” wide Turbo 7 blades with the 1-1/4” tooth spacing and we really like them for the ability to cut faster with the same surface quality,” said Marty. “We’ve tried other blades but didn’t see the quality like we do with Wood-Mizer.” The company also sharpens their blades daily in-house with Wood-Mizer blade sharpening and setting equipment which has helped reduce costs and provide consistent cut quality. “Maintaining our blades in house tends to save money when you don’t have to worry about shipping them out,” said Marty. “We can also control the quality of blades that we are using and we can change the tooth set based on the species we are sawing.” Processing Grade and Pallet Material The sawmill business runs eight hours a day, five days a week with five employees doing a variety of work including milling, edging, running the chop saw, and sharpening blades. "The WM4500 is a lot heavier built which makes it a lot easier handling bigger and longer logs,” said Marty. A variety of grade and pallet quality logs are supplied from Ohio and nearby states including Michigan and Indiana. Grade quality logs tend to come from longer distances because there is more money in the finished material than pallet quality logs that generally come from shorter distances. “We primarily saw walnut, red and white oak, cottonwood, cherry, maple, sassafras, and hickory,” said Marty. First, logs are unloaded and scaled for board footage before being sorted for grade or pallet quality. If they are grade quality, logs are also sorted by species. On the WM4500 sawmill, logs are milled into various sized cants and boards depending on the customer needs and sent to a transfer deck. For boards that need to be edged, the transfer deck sends material to a green chain that goes to the EG400 board edger. “The EG400 edger has a larger width capacity, laser lines, and presets for quickly setting the right board width. Plus cutting speed is a lot faster which has sped up production,” shared Marty. For straight edged material off the mill, the transfer deck sends material to a large chop saw to cut to the correct length. Material is then stacked and prepared to send out to clients. David’s advice for start-up sawmill operations is to work hard, market your business to grow your customer base, and to be patient during good times and bad. For the future, the company is looking to invest in a log debarker, a second sawmill, or even a grade resaw system in order to improve efficiency. For now, L. Garbers & Sons continues to focus on quality and consistency in everything they do. “Do a quality job and you will always have work,” said Marty. “We’ve heard from many different customers that they buy from places with good quality and consistency. That’s something we always try to strive for and is a pride of ours. That philosophy has kept us work in even some of the leanest times.”

Wood-Mizer will sponsor an urban wood seminar, "The Urban Wood Revolution is Now! Come Join the Movement," on Friday, August 24 at the International Woodworking Fair in Atlanta, GA. The seminar will focus on the environmental and economical benefits of utilizing locally sourced urban wood while providing practical instruction and networking opportunities for sawyers, woodworkers, lumber suppliers, and lumber buyers. Urban trees are used for lumber in order to make better use of wood from sources like our own yards, parks, and even near our city streets. Every urban tree used for lumber is one less tree that must be cut from our forests and one less piece of green waste that would otherwise be dumped in our landfills. According to IWF, the seminar will also address: > The unique "source local/buy local" marketing appeal of urban wood products and the interesting stories they tell > The environmental advantages of utilizing urban wood > How to find local sources of urban wood > How to join or start a local urban wood network > A Q&A session with an expert panel The main speaker for the seminar is Jennifer Alger, CEO of Far West Forest Products of Sheridan, CA, and president of the newly founded Urban Salvaged & Reclaimed Woods, the first urban lumber trade network on the West Coast. Dwayne Sperber will also be speaking at the event. Dwayne is the Wisconsin state lead for the Urban Wood Network, and the owner and founder of Wudeward Urban Forest Products, which supplies lumber to architects, designers, and builders. "Throughout the past decade, Wood-Mizer has seen a major influx of successful businesses who are utilizing urban-sourced wood for their sawmilling operations and we are proud to manufacture a product that enables small businesses to be profitable with an underutilized resource," explains Wood-Mizer COO Darryl Floyd. "While Wood-Mizer has been educating woodworkers about the positive environmental and economic impact of urban wood for years, the Urban Wood Seminar at IWF 2018 will be another step forward in saving more trees from going into the waste stream." Wood-Mizer is dedicated to sustainable forest management and the urban sawmilling movement. The company recently developed an Urban Sawmilling Video Series highlighting businesses in the USA and Canada who are using locally sourced and salvaged urban timber to make a difference in the wood industry, where many of the hardwoods and softwoods we love are burned, buried, ground, or simply thrown away. Wood-Mizer has also published a guide to urban milling called "Salvaging, Sawmilling, and Marketing Urban Wood" which can be downloaded here. The Urban Wood Network, along with Wood-Mizer, recognizes the need for sustainable forestry practices and has joined businesses and individuals in the Midwest to promote urban wood utilization. Part of UWN's mission is to "build a common understanding, language, commitment, and eventually, brand for the urban wood marketplace." The Urban Wood Seminar is free of charge, but advanced registration is required to guarantee a seat. Learn more and register here.

The Wood-Mizer exclusive Vortex® dust-removal blade profile is now available in DoubleHard high-alloy steel resulting in a more durable blade that delivers up to twice the toughness and sharp life compared to carbon steel blades. Introduced in 2016, Vortex® dust-removal technology was previously an exclusive feature of SilverTip carbon steel material used primarily in high-production resawing operations. Patent pending and trademarked for its revolutionary design, the Vortex® blade profile creates an extremely unique turbulence that removes sawdust from the cut. With a typical blade, sawdust can remain on the board by spilling out of the smaller gullet while sawing. By reducing the amount of sawdust left on the board, the Vortex® blade minimizes the need for additional sawdust removal after processing. In addition, Vortex® blades can be sharpened by Wood-Mizer’s blade maintenance equipment or ReSharp® blade sharpening service to extend the flex life of the blade and maintain cut quality. "The Vortex blades leave 80% less sawdust than any other blades I have tried throughout the past 25 years,” said Mark Borneman with Timber Creek Resources in Antigo, Wisconsin. "We have eliminated the need for a deduster on a majority of our jobs.” The Vortex® blade is now available to order in both SilverTip and DoubleHard material in a variety of widths, thicknesses, and lengths to fit various sawmill and resaw brands and models. Wood-Mizer offers an extensive range of blades with more than 100 combinations based on profile, width, thickness, tooth spacing, and alloy for any type of sawing or resawing application from green softwoods to abrasive hardwoods.
