A horizontal sawmill is a type of sawmill where the saw blade is positioned horizontally instead of vertically. In a horizontal sawmill, the logs or lumber are placed on a carriage that moves the wood through the saw blade. As the blade cuts through the wood, it produces boards or planks of a desired thickness.

Compared to a vertical sawmill, a horizontal sawmill can typically handle larger logs and produce wider boards. Additionally, horizontal sawmills may be more efficient in terms of sawdust and waste management. However, horizontal sawmills may require more space than vertical sawmills, and they may be more expensive to operate and maintain.
