Video: Alaskan mill used to make oak wood slabs!

Hey guys! In this "adventures of Corbin" episode I'm using my Alaskan Mill to make my own oak wood slabs! Check it out in case you are interested in doing it yourself, as I go over the basics on what I did. A pretty large oak tree fell down on my property last summer, and I wanted to see if I could get some usable wood of it. This is my second time using an alaskan mill, and it is a lot of hard work, but good fun. If you liked the video, subscribe! It encourages me to make more cool films.
