So update:

First- I found a guy that will bring a portable saw mill over for $600 a day. He can do about 10 logs in a day and can handle up to 30". Worth it?

I thought the same thing. I'm a 1/4" or 3/8" nap guy. The fatter the nap the less smooth the result.

I like using the premium rollers for smooth and semi smooth surfaces.

On a box that size you'd probably have little to worry about. Bracing becomes serious concern every 10" or more span. I'd assume you'd have a new corner or boundary there on your box anyways. Just...

MDF > BB.
