Cold and really dusty. As you can see in the video below from Reactions , the furniture piece he built at his office looks like something you might find in your dining room, albeit a little more educational. If you knew the old dirt log roads well enough you could ride all the way to the Oregon Coast. That's life, as Esther would say: My son and I and our wives toured this mill last December and thanks to our guide, Don Oakes, came away with a profound appreciation for an industry that was once nearly ubiquitous in the Northwest. It was donated to the Celebration and most effectively powered by the owner of several Keck-Gonnerman engines. They moved in and rebuilt the homes, grocery store, school house and church.

Our Shelved PSA shows why we need to end the backlog.

In researching to write about that incident, I came across your site and found the info very helpful and fascinating as well. Great photos of mill. The smells, the flow through the mill, and skill sets required by the various machine operators will also be remembered. Awesome to see that magnificent ship rebuilt! This site brings back lots of memories good and bad.

This mill was not steam operated but it took so much power that when it started all the light in Forks dimmed. This mill also had planers and they sold a finished cedar product. Thanks again Respectfully Bill Sperry. I toured the mill last fall and still have short videos of the headrig cutting huge timbers on my cell phone. This was an absolute treat. Nice to have keepsakes around. It is great to see a wonderful mill like this still in operation. I have a large circle saw 64inch in front of my house powered by a steam engine..

It has an atlas engine with a 10 inch bore and 14 inch stroke.. The headblocks are adjustable, so something a little larger could be set up for. The boiler is horizontal and has 92 3 inch flues 14 ft one inch long in it. The great area is five by nine feet. We fire it on slabs and railroad ties. The engine is an Atlas manufactured in Indianapolis Indiana.

The flywheel is about five feet in diameter and 14 inches wide. It drives a 10 inch flat belt which goes to the husk and an edger. Sawdust is carried out by a drag chain. I have a machine shop next door in which all the lumber except the poles was sawed on this mill. Schwenk passed away a few years after setting up this mill. He had always wanted one. He also owned a horsepower Nichols Sheppard engine, a A. Baker engine and a Minneapolis engine,and his fathers engine a M.

Rumley engine built here in La Porte Indian. The baker engine was his favorite. Baker had invented a very modern valve gear for the engine, and was sought after by many railroads to put his steam efficient valve gear on their engines. I new have a two cylinder upright westinghouse single acting engine to be used for the swing cut off saw, and a two cylinder water pump engine. We also have a twin cylinder pumping engine one injector,and a manual pump for water in the boiler.

You just cant beat the smells and sounds of a saw mill running cutting oak and steaming steam cylinder oil in the air. My hat goes off to you guys there for keeping your mill operating.

I guess I am showing my age. I was lucky enough to run all the steam locomotives at Cedar Point in Sandusky Ohio for two summers. I pulled five cars four trips an hour and hauled three hundred and fifty passengers on every trip. The second year I not only ran the engines, but fired, took on water, and shovelled the coal into the tenders every morning by hand by myself.

We had the old waste stuffed journals and I oiled them all every morning. I also started the fires, blew out the flews with a steam hose to knock out the excess soot. My friend Don was one of the last to shock wheat and oats and corn here so he could thresh it with his old advance rumley separator. Come to Indiana in the fall to our threshing show.

I was one of the founders about 25 to 30 years ago. By the way the boiler on our mill formerly heated the New York Central track pan in Chesterton Indiana, and was hauled over to this area on a wagon drawn by horses.

Best Regards, Rich Lidke I have a video of our mill on here made by a friend. Thankyou for a wonderful journey through the operations of an old Steam driven sawmill. Thank you, and I hope the mill still keeps going for generations to come. If at all possible, young children age should see this process to become aware of the hard ardous work necessary to obtain wood down to paper. We are honing in on becoming more green and appreciative of nature but a hands on visible look would be worth a thousand words.

I am very impressed and enjoyed reading about the process of a tree. Later, my father and his brother took over the operation around In my cousin and myself both started working on the mill and in the woods of central PA cutting timber and running the backend of the mill. We would take the lumber off the edger and stack it and cut all the slabs and edgings to either fire wood size or slabs for firing the brick yard kilms. We sold the sawdust also. This story really brought back the memories from that time.

We supplied a lot of ties to the railroad and prime oak for hardwood flooring. We also subblied ash blanks to be turned into handles and baseball bats. We also custom cut lumber for many special projects including homes and other buildings which required special timbers.

It was quite an experience. One of the stories my father told me about my grandfather was that when he was young, he lived in a logging camp. On Saturdays, the logging camps would get together and each camp would have a camp champion to box bare knuckle.

My grandfather was champion for a number of years and according to Dad, wan never defeated. A very enjoyable and informative presentation. I learned quite a bit with each picture. I love history information like this and hopefully it will stay around for many years for others to see and learn from. I sure am glad that I have taken the tour and being from California, plan on coming up north to take the physical tour so I can see, hear and smell the complete process.

I hope that will be o. I was sent this by a friend who knows my interest in steam power. But I found the whole mill operation absolutely fascinating. An operation like this is a one of a kind thing and deserves to be kept in use as long as possible.

I noticed that they say the steam engines have less trouble than anything else they could use. Unfortunately boilers are maintenance intensive by comparison. Thanks for all the work to put this together.

I grew up with this mill. My dad worked there until he died in I spent my summers during high school with Hull family across the road from the mill. Field trip to San Francisco when in sixth grade spent the night on The C. Thayer and did all the stuff that was done on the ship back when it was in operation.

Great photos of mill. It should not be closed down. I graded lumber after it was dried in the kilns for a few years and then changed to the river crew, where I fed logs into the mill in a steel cable hoist, up to the head rig.

I sometimes worked as an off bearer behind the head rig, but finally transferred to the log dump. I ran the cantilever dump, lifting the entire loads off of the trucks and dumping them into the river where they were sorted and graded to be formed into rafts and stored until needed by the mill.

Then the truck trailers were loaded back onto the trucks, so they could return to the woods for another load. IP built a paper mill next to the saw mill and plywood plant, and used the slabs from squaring up the logs to chip into pieces to digest into paper pulp.

The logs had to be barked before they could use them, so they were cold decked and not dumped into the river anymore.

The old cantilever dump was sold to a shipyard across the river in Reedsport to lift boats onto the drydock. IP cut all of their timber and shipped it to China. Leaving Gardiner like so many other lumber towns in the Pacific Northwest. I walked and sorted the logs before sending them into the mill. But, it sort of made me mad as I sat and thought about it.

We live in a country where the ones who are rewarded most handsomely are those who produce absolutely nothing of value. Here, we have workers who actually work, yet more and more of their country is owned by the bankers, lawyers and speculators, those who have produced little of value for our country. Long live sawmill workers.

I just called them up and asked if I could visit and they said yes. While I was there, one of the employees took me on a tour. Same thing the second time I went. You should make a video and get this on a program like This Old House. What a great story and my hat is off to those that have spent their life working at this mill. I moved from N. Last year they closed the mill at Frenchtown and the Lumber mill at Bonner,Mt.

It is appalling that we now send our logs over to China to get made into different products and when they are finished they are shipped back to the U. I have seen this when I drove Truck picking up loads from the docks in Ca.

Ironically I have even been sent to deliver loads and pick them up at the papermill plant in Frenchtown,Mt.. I can remember everything coming from Japan when I was growing up and now our country is suffering from loss of jobs because our politicians,bankers and government has sold us short. Now we know that these groups have been lying about what is really going on and they did this so they could get government-taxpayer money over all these years for their special programs.

Our government and politicians are letting this happen. Forest fires destroy more trees than a logger can cut in a hundred years. Trees can be grown and harvested just like crops of wheat,barley etc. Maybe we can turn this around and start producing in our own country again soon. The woods, the mill, made boxes, doors and the town. The mill saws could handle giant sugar pine logs cut from the slopes of Mt. One never forgets the smell and whistles of a company owned lumber town.

And a previous comment was true: Blessed to have followed my Dad into forest products, and to have spent some time in old sawmills both as a laborer, and as a safety professional.

The sounds, the feel of the wood, the aroma of freshly sawn timber, and the satisfaction of surviving yet another damn difficult day hard-at-it, are unforgetable memories. But the best part of it all — and the single most endearing aspect of Hull-Oakes, is the folks who work there and live that life-style as close as you can find to how it was. All that old technology, and the effort they put into maintaining their historic designation is impressive to say the least.

It is by Green Frog Productions, Ltd. It is very well done, tracking a log through the process just as your photo essay does. This was on the Menominee Indian Reservation in NE Wisconsin which had some of the last remaining old-growth timber left of the great forests that once covered most of that state.

The mill was unusual in that it was built by the US government to provide an industry for the tribe, so the main mill building was of cast concrete, sturdy enough that it still operates today.

Back then, it was still powered by a big steam engine, and the sights, sounds, smells and overall action of all the saw carriage, jacks, moving chains and workers was immensely fascinating for a 7 year old.

And still is for a 68 year old! I lived near Placerville, CA. Not many had bandsaws, most used circular saws, one mounted above the other which permitted them to cut large logs.

The circular saw blades had removable teeth, occasionaly a tooth would come off and go through the roof of the mill. Most lumber was not planned, homes were built with rough lumber. A two by four was acually that size and had lots of splinters, must have been tough being a carpenter in those days.

I worked as a log setter in a small mill in Riddle Or. I was a timber faller for some time. All the logs shown in these pictures are douglas fir. I fell thousands of them, some even larger than any pictured. I got out of the woods in I worked as a furniture salesman for 30 years. I met Mrs hull at Blackledge furniture in Corvallis Or.

I was out to her home several times and sold her a lot of things over the years. The family was all wonderful. She had a large log house built over by Bend Or. One of the store decorators furnished it for her. Barker would to me imply to place the bark onto the log. I think you have the time of Mr. Hulls death wrong, it must have been ,it was some time before I retired in I worked in sawmills Bandsaw mill such as the sawmill Pictured located in Hilis, CA from age 18 years of age until I was The teeth on the back of the bandsaw also served to cut pieces of the log that may spring out after the sawyer went through the cut.

We referred to the teeth as splinter teeth. I was the person that rode the carriage and was called a ratchett setter. Pictures bring back many memories from into My dad work for the Kerr Lumber co. He not only worked in the saw mill but was the engineer of the train that hauled the logs out of the forest.

I was born at that time but he used to tell us about it. My mother would talk about it also. He died in I have part of one of the boards found in an old barn that was torn down several years ago. Nothing like the smell of fresh cut wood and the beauty of a finished object made of wood. What a great, great presentation, but just as interesting have been all the follow up comments, so many by people in my age bracket, i. Incredible memories, and I saw most of the large mills in CA when I was a woods rat cruising timber.

I am surprised to see that there is still at least one log pond around. Once the big handling equipment that LeTourneau, Cat and Euclid built came on the scene, most mills turned to log yards, sorting on land instead of water. Beyond the head rig the conveyor system could handle only small dimension stuff.

If they were cutting an RR tie or a large square, once it was to dimension the sawyer would bring back the carriage at full speed, the dogs would be lifted, and when the carriage came to a stop the timber would shoot back out of the mill, fall some 20 feet, and land in the pond with a gigantic splash.

Could give you quite a start if you were driving by and not expecting it. I used to work in a lumber yard back in Ames, Iowa for several years. I received your presentation from friends in Central Oregon this morning and how great it is. I have read every one of the comments and much to my suprise there are none from Anacortes, WA, where we had two huge sawmills, a pulp mill, a plywood mill, and a dozen shingle mills, plus numerous individual shake cutters.

Wood and fish was our life blood on this island. I grew up hanging out at our local shinglemill on Similk bay at Summit Park, and knew every hand there. IT was all steam, as all our mills were. My dad worked in the logging industry before me. Years later as an engineer and business owner, I converted two steam mills to Hydraulic. The first at Johnsondale, CA a complete company owned town and mill and the second was a smaller mill at Davenport, CA. I did live in the Bloedel-Donovon Owners house in Bellingham, Washington in that over looked their mill.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful piece of history. I have driven by this mill you showcased many times. The lovely old log trucks were out though and made for great photographs. The sawmill is going to be open to the public for a tour on May 18, as a part of Historic Preservation Month. I grew up in the Wauconda Area Graduated from Republic High schoo in , As a kid I used to help a friend of the family cut railroad ties I used to use a sort of knife like article and cut the bark off of the ties that he cut.

Made a dollar a day then after a stint in the Army after being discharged in I worked in a steam powered saw mill in Tonasket, Washington for quite some time so I really enjoyed this article Thanks again for bringing back fond memories Bill Fischer. I visited Hull Oakes a few years ago and found it fascinating. Now I am involved in a writing project involving specific elements of Oregon history and would like to use this story as a resource, with permission.

When I got out of the Navy in 79 my new bride lived in Corvallis. We moved from Georgia to Philomath Oregon where there was I believe 5 sawmills within the city limits or very close to it. I went for a millwright position at Pedee lumber company, which had already been filled.

The owner did me a favor since we were both navy men from the black gang boiler rooms he put me on as the off bearer by the big bandmill. I soon began to wonder if he really did me a favor or not, when you work in one of these old mills where most all of the work was manually done, there was know slowing down and you generally had more than one job at a time.

If you worked in one of these mills and lasted, you were a real man. Thanks for the memories. I am in the process of setting up a small mill in the back of my place, not to really make money but to enjoy the sounds and smells of logs being milled.

Some guys want bass boats, I prefer a sawmill. Sawmill in Monroe, Oregon. There also has been one book written about the mill, its processes and history. Here is the citation:. A Case Study in Industrial Archaeology. Keep up the good work. What an excellent documentary of the mill and the timber industry.

It brings back a flood of memories as my entire family has been involved in the industry in one way or another for over years. The company would later become Publishers Paper Co. Sadly, the mill was recently forced into bankruptcy when it was unable to compete with the Chinese for raw materials. My Grandfather started a career in the woods in Alsea maintaining a steam donkey for the logging operations. He later moved to the Hull-Oaks mill in maintenance to work on the steam engines there.

To know the toughness of these folks, my Grandfather talked of the times that he would walk from Alsea to Corvallis for food provisions for the family. That is an uphill walk back of some 22 miles carrying a load of groceries!

During the depression, another group took the risks and constructed a plywood mill in Albany. This mill used steam power for the lathe while the balance of the machinery was electric. The electric power came from two steam turbine generators that had sufficient generation capacity to run the entire city of Albany in an emergency. The steam was also used in the dryers to dry the veneer. At times the peeler blocks were so large in diameter that they would be chucked off center and rocked back and forth to cut down one side and then re-chucked to clear the floor.

During World War II, these thick panels of plywood were used for the carrier decks on our aircraft carriers. I started my career in wood products at this mill; learning to run every machine station there was while going to college, studying in the field of accounting. Later, as a CPA working for a national accounting firm in Portland, I would return to this mill to audit the books as an independent accountant. Sadly, this mill too is gone; lost to the Spotted Owl controversy that closed down logging operations for so many mills.

One of my major clients turned out to be Publishers Paper Co. Later, I would leave public accounting and take various accounting positions with Publishers.

I later moved on to other wood produicts companies finally retiring. I still build from wood and will until I die. In my early years I would pass through the mill many times on my way to hunt for deer in the hills west of the mill and later on, to ride motorcycles all over those hills. If you knew the old dirt log roads well enough you could ride all the way to the Oregon Coast.

The guys at the mill were always friendly and would wave as you went by or stop you on your way out from hunting to inquire of your luck. The sound of the screaming saws, the steam engine, debarker and the mill overall was a symphony of pure pleasure. Finally, being politically incorrect, as most timber folks are, I will note that the favored term for the articulated arm on the carriage that turns the log is the Nigger. Thanks for a great story of real America.

I was a personal friend to Ralph Hull. He wanted the mill to continue after his death and his genius was in acquiring timber ownership to leave as a continueing raw material supply. The mill does not run exclusively on Ralph Hull timber but I sincerely doubt if it could still operate without the private timber holding. Ralph was a Good Samaritan. Not only are the folks at Hull-Oakes fine and respectful, they are intelligent as well.

There are no computer-operated machines in the mill; every operator is working with the computer in his or her head. Furthermore, every log cut is to meet a specific order, which can vary from one log to many, and from small to large as the photos showed.

It is an unusual and remarkable place. Thanks for a great photographic record. I just read this online and I wanted to tell you that I grew up around Hull-Oaks. My grandpa worked there for years until he finally retired. Even today if you ask around the mill if they knew Barney, they would. Also my uncle still works up there has since he was 18 years old. My father worked there off and on when I was growing up. I really enjoyed reading what you wrote.

I hope you get a chance to go back out there and do another article. I throughly engoyed this entire article. I am an old fan of steam power in every application and am fortunate to live only one 1 mile from a steam traction engine museum here in Portland, Tn. The museum also contains over gasoline, diesel and kerosine powered tractors on steel and rubber tracks or wheels. They belt up many different tractors and Traction Engines to it to cut the mostly popular and oak logs.

It was donated to the Celebration and most effectively powered by the owner of several Keck-Gonnerman engines. They can bee seen, heard, and smelt working away every October on the first week-end.

Right off of state rd. Come see us, and Remember,……. Beautiful job on this site thanks Wayne. Gary Katz I would like to thank you for your work and photos on the Hull-Oakes mill. As a young man I had one of the best childhoods growing up there, I wish every kid could have had that growing up and this world would be a better place.

My father worked for Diamond Match Lumber Co. He past away at 47yrs. However the memories that your story stirred, when we would cut the pine and redwood boards, oh the fragrance, working late in the night to get the orders out for next day deliveries.

As you can see I have started a small lumber company just because I love it, certainly not for the money. Can you tell me if Hull-Oakes mill has someone there that I can contact to visit them?

While humans have known carbon as coal and—after burning—soot for thousands of years, it was Antoine Lavoisier who, in , showed that it was in fact a unique chemical entity. Lavoisier used an instrument that focused the Sun's rays using lenses which had a diameter of about four feet.

He used the apparatus, called a solar furnace, to burn a diamond in a glass jar. By analyzing the residue found in the jar, he was able to show that diamond was comprised solely of carbon. The name carbon derives from the French charbon , or coal. It can form four bonds, which it does with many other elements, creating hundreds of thousands of compounds, some of which we use daily.

More importantly, those bonds are both strong and flexible. May Nyman , a professor of inorganic chemistry at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon tells Mental Floss that carbon has an almost unbelievable range. It forms chains and rings, in a process chemists call catenation. Every living thing is built on a backbone of carbon with nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, and other elements.

So animals, plants, every living cell, and of course humans are a product of catenation. Our bodies are And yet it can be inorganic as well, Nyman says. It teams up with oxygen and other substances to form large parts of the inanimate world, like rocks and minerals.

Carbon is found in four major forms: Graphite "the writing stone" is made up of loosely connected sheets of carbon formed like chicken wire. Penciling something in actually is just scratching layers of graphite onto paper. Diamonds, in contrast, are linked three-dimensionally. These exceptionally strong bonds can only be broken by a huge amount of energy. Because diamonds have many of these bonds, it makes them the hardest substance on Earth.

Fullerenes were discovered in when a group of scientists blasted graphite with a laser and the resulting carbon gas condensed to previously unknown spherical molecules with 60 and 70 atoms. The youngest member of the carbon family is graphene, found by chance in by Andre Geim and Kostya Novoselov in an impromptu research jam.

The scientists used scotch tape— yes, really —to lift carbon sheets one atom thick from a lump of graphite. The new material is extremely thin and strong. Diamonds are called "ice" because their ability to transport heat makes them cool to the touch—not because of their look. This makes them ideal for use as heat sinks in microchips. Synthethic diamonds are mostly used. Again, diamonds' three-dimensional lattice structure comes into play. Heat is turned into lattice vibrations, which are responsible for diamonds' very high thermal conductivity.

American scientist Willard F. Libby won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in for developing a method for dating relics by analyzing the amount of a radioactive subspecies of carbon contained in them.

Radiocarbon or C14 dating measures the decay of a radioactive form of carbon, C14, that accumulates in living things. It can be used for objects that are as much as 50, years old.
