In this post I will share three videos detailing how I turned a cheap boat trailer off of Craigslist into a portable sawmill trailer.  It was not a hard project but it did take a lot of time to think and I had to change my plans several times during the project.

This project lends itself to other trailer builds, you can easily make a utility trailer the same way (or use this trailer as a utility trailer.





I can now move my mill without spending all day setting up track, my track is always level, and I can keep all my materials together.  Heck I can even bring the wood back home with me on the same trailer that cut it.

Part 1

Describes the basic project and shows the main aspects of the project

Part 2

Talks more about the track and how the mill rolls on them

Part 3

Shows the finished trailer with a log on it, it describes how to set the trailer up on the jack-stands and prepares it for use.

I need one more video showing it in use and how I winch a log onto the trailer, I just have to reset the trailer up on the homestead.
