NORWOOD SAWMILLS - A Tradition of Resourcefulness, Innovation & Integrity

Get to know the people and story behind Norwood Sawmills ...

Rooted in a strong belief in self-sufficiency, and a passion for living in and off the land, Norwood was born in 1993.


Norwood founder, Peter Dale, dreamed of building a better life for himself and his family. His vision charted the course that revolutionized the sawmill industry ... it blew away the barriers holding people back from building their dreams.


Norwood offered landowners, woodworkers and hard-working people everywhere, the world's first financially-accessible sawmill.
It was productive, accurate, reliable, versatile and so easy-to-use that even first-time sawyers could enjoy it.

Those qualities continue to be built into every Norwood made today.


Since Norwood was founded in 1993, thousands of Norwood owners around the world have built homes, businesses, cabins, barns, furniture and countless remarkable projects.

They stand as a testament to the power of passion, vision, commitment and determination ... and we salute them. With Norwood sawmills in their capable hands, they can, and do, build anything and everything with excellence.


Norwood's roots are real people finding real solutions that unlock real opportunities in the forest and beyond. While Norwood has grown dramatically since its pioneering days, we remain guided by our founding principles...

We believe deeply in the right of every landowner, woodworker and hard worker to build a better life, and to do it with pride and integrity.

    I think it is about time for a sawmill producer to incorporate actual level indicators on the sawmill frame and I would like to see Norwood do it. I am constantly checking mine for level with a four foot level so my boards are good from side to side. It would also aid tremendously with the initial setup.

    Ashley, years ago I sent your Dad a copy of my cam style log dog and he prefected it to what it is today. 18 plus years and my lumbermate 2000 still going strong, have never replaced anything except the water bottle spout.
