Technical Museum of Slovenia Collections

Log sawing

The remaining three rooms of the woodworking department encompass the presentation of log sawing in Slovenia, and the production of chairs as a part of furniture industry. The first and the second room give a presentation of various sawing techniques, with a special emphasis on demonstrations of log sawing in relation to the sources of motive power utilised – manual (hand), water, steam or electricity – in the saw mill operation. The display of operational scale models of different types of water and steam-powered sawmill and the vertical frame saw are most interesting and educational. There are also recreations of the former industrial complex of steam sawmills that once operated in the Kočevski Rog forest, as well as a model of another large plant.
