The Sawmill operator can be found along the south-west wall of the Varrock lumber yard, at the File:Saw mill icon.png icon on the minimap. He can turn four kinds of logs into planks (see sawmill), and he also sells bolts of cloth, three kinds of nails, and saws. He will not accept noted logs, except indirectly through house servants.

Players can obtain planks by taking logs to the sawmill operator. Right-click on this NPC, and there will be a "Buy planks" option. Players can then choose to make regular planks from regular logs, oak planks from oak logs, teak planks from teak logs, or mahogany planks from mahogany logs, for a price.

Despite his name, the Sawmill operator is not involved in the Sawmill training operation at the nearby Sawmill.

Special Logs

Special teak logs and Special mahogany logs can be brought to the Sawmill operator and either sold or exchanged for a completely free conversion of the logs in your inventory into planks. The free conversion requires two of the same type of special log:

  • Two special teak logs can be used to convert up to 26 teak logs into teak planks.
  • Two special mahogany logs can be used to convert up to 26 teak logs and/or mahogany logs into teak/mahogany planks.

If you have only one special total or one special of each type, the operator will only offer to buy your special logs. Also, Jagex has now added a mugger just outside of the sawmill to prevent level 3 bots.
