We are a Sawmill Service near Cambridge Minnesota. Our core value is to be a resource to help the DIY craftsperson, home owner, business owner or artist needing a sawmill! Sometimes answering questions relating to milling and drying wood is all that is needed.

We also strive to be a friendly resource to help you create your ideas. No longer do you have to feel limited because you have no way to use that beautiful log!
Jim’s love for creating art from wood began as a child, where he learned many of the skills of the trade from his father. Making wooden go-carts and tree houses to real houses, remodels, and now log benches, mantles, tables and benches span several project filled years. Now, he and his wife live on a beautiful acreage with production pine and old growth timber. Because Jim sees the unique beauty, majesty and personality within each tree, he felt compelled to preserve those elements as they died. He also uses this perspective to help his customers envision the potential for their own fallen timber; creating legacies from simple logs.
Black Bear Sawmill is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that each piece is a masterpiece. We will begin with a consultation to find out what you're looking for. Then, together we work to design a product that fulfills your dreams and fits your space. During the cut and build, we keep you informed and involved in the decision making process. Sometimes our customers like to help, but during this time of pandemic uncertainty we prefer keeping visits short.
