Lumber Smith was born after Hurricane Isabel in 2003. The Pollards had bought a portable sawmill that had gotten great reviews, but – while it was actually portable - it just wasn’t powerful enough to cut effectively. As they shopped they found powerful mills, but they all weighed too much to be deemed “portable.”
The Pollards saw a need for true portable sawmill and Albert Sr. - an engineer who has designed and built boats, engines, mechanical linkages, houses, clocks, docks, solar systems, electronic relay devices and the like - starting designing a sawmill. Lumber Smith was born.
Lumber Smith has sawmills in 49 states and over a dozen countries. Our diverse owners might be a wood worker, homesteader, rancher or a tree surgeon but all are attracted to our portability, unique design and excellent value.Buy one today and become part of the Lumber Smith family.
