Saw Filers in National


These two saw filers (probably out of National, Wash.,) played an important role in the woods. If the saws weren’t sharp, the trees couldn’t come down.

Today there are still saw filers who maintain and repair the saws in the sawmill. If you’d like to read an article about current saw filers, just click HERE.

    This picture of the Homes in National sure looks like it could have been in the earliest of times. Just idly wondering if/who is on the porch with the baby???
    Glad to see it!
