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.
Describes the basic project and shows the main aspects of the project
Talks more about the track and how the mill rolls on them
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.
