The logs are natural logs with uneven features since they are natural hand hewn. They were supposed to be flattened at the mill but that did not happen. I tried a 4 1/2" planner but I need to take off 1" to 1.5" (6" to 8" wide) and the process was way too slow (less than 1/8" per cut on 4 logs each 16' long). The logs are floor joists that full 2" T&G will go onto. I looked at using a band saw but I would need to use a 14" band saw that weights 250 pounds. I have an Alaskan mill but the chainsaw oil and fumes inside the house are not desirable.
I am looking for more ideas . . . thank you!
