=> WOODWEB Launches Sawmill Gallery

Participants at WOODWEB have often expressed interest in
how fellow professionals outfit their sawmills and primary
processing operations. With that in mind, we've created
the Sawmill Gallery - where sawyers and log handling 
companies can upload photos of their sawmill operation,
the products produced, and provide basic information about
the setup of their sawmill.

Creating a listing at the Sawmill Gallery is easy, and
free: all you need is a digital camera. To create your 
Sawmill Gallery listing, follow the link below, then click
the "Post Your Sawmill Listing" link found in the lower 
blue bar at the Sawmill Gallery.

The up-close shots in this WOODWEB Project Gallery listing
provide great glimpses at the joinery and wood grain in 
this redwood deck. And don't miss the builder's cherry
media center photos under "View more projects by this
member" at the top of the listing.

inspire staff. Read on to learn about the success others
have had implementing such systems:

carpenters, and the cabinetmaker are all involved... who 
is responsible?

Costs and profits in the world of cabinetmaking are a
perennial topic of interest at WOODWEB's Forums. This
thread begins with an analysis of material costs for an
inset face frame kitchen, and an invitation to join in the
