O Scale Sawmill Project
March 2013 Update


Currently in pre-production and due for release this year...
A backwoods O scale sawmill based upon the plans drawn
by Boone Morrison of the Sturgeons' Sawmill located in Sebastopol, California.
Suitable for a wide date range from the late 1800's to the 1940's and even beyond!
This project would not be possible without help from my friends
Doug Ramos, Karl Allison, and Kevin O'neill.

The story...
Back in early 2004 Boone and I were discussing the possibilities of producing a kit
based upon Sturgeons' since the O scale sawmill equipment I produce so closely
resembles that from the prototype. Not to mention it is the perfect design for a model!
Well as with many projects it got shelved... Then in the spring of 2007 the Finescale
Railroader Logging and Mining Annual showed up with an article by my buddy
Marty Jones. It featured his sawmill constructed using Boone's plans and my sawmill
machinery kits. That re-ignited the spark to produce this kit.

 

Here is an almost to scale drawing of just the mill
It occupies an area about 15" x 25"

 

 

The photographs that follow are of Marty's beautiful mill.
They were taken by Danielle Guardino and Marty.

They provide you with a great idea of what the kit will look like once you build it.
