About Stan Bookman

Stan BookmanStan Bookman, creator of Bookman’s Bandsaw Mill, makes a living as a woodworker and inventor in the Pacific Northwest. In need of a mobile, durable, and powerful sawmill, Bookman originally created and customized his lightweight and extremely efficient sawmill to mill the felled cedar, hemlock, and fir on his 40-acre property in the woods of northwest Washington state. Having worked with wood as a master carpenter for 40 years, Bookman found no end of uses for his fast-cutting and precise sawmill. Specifically he uses his mill to manufacture his pentomino puzzle books, which are made from 12 different northwest woods. It wasn’t long before Bookman began responding to requests to make the sawmill for others, which was how Bookman’s Bandsaw Mill was born.
