A Granberg Alaskan MK3 sawmill and a Logosol Timberjig are used to make slabwood furniture and other high value wood products from abandonded logs along the headwaters of the Amazon River in Ecuador. Jim Birkemeier and Shawn Olmstead from Timbergreen Farm near Spring Green Wisconsin, USA shared information and demonstrated these machines for the leaders of the Kallari Cooperative in Tena, Ecuador - September 2010. The slabs are now being dried in solar heated drying sheds. Elias Alvarado will soon visit the USA and Timbergreen Farm to continure the information sharing between continents by the small businesses using waste wood to create new jobs.
