We live in Colorado, south of Denver—where it is very dry, at 8,300ft—surrounded by Aspen and various conifer trees. We have the need to remove the many fallen trees on the property to mitigate fire hazard. Rather than paying someone to do so, I’m wondering what my options are for sourcing this material into something usable for furniture, etc.
I have a Maslow, of course, and a smaller CNC machine. I’m not a woodworking professional. I’d be happy to pay someone local to cut them into various sizes, if that’s an easy and cost-effective thing to do. They’re thin, so I doubt I could get a Maslow-sized sheet out of it. Which makes me think they’d mostly be useful for thicker beams and railings (?)
Pretty unsure where to start, other than calling lumber mills. Any advice appreciated!
