We will cut live edge or straight edge, thick or thin, to most standard or custom sizes. We can also surface boards for you, whether you bought them from us, or someone else. Keep reading for more details on how this works!
If you have a tree coming down, and would like to have us mill it for you, we're here to help with that. However, we want to be clear about the timeline from removing a live tree to turning it into milled lumber. Our process is as follows:
This is also available if you have a tree that's been down some time, or have located a trunk that you want milled. The milling timeline will depend on the measured moisture content in the wood brought to us.
We use a Turbo Saw Mill M12/22A swing-head circular mill. This machine can cut a log up to a 48" diameter, any length from 4' - 22'. Max depth of cut is 12" per side, so a double cut can be up to 24" across. Slabs, planks, beams, and dimensional lumber cut to your specifications are available.
For surfacing, we have an SCMI 16" jointer and an SAC 24" planer, both industrial machines. Our equipment makes rough lumber smooth and we can plane your wood down to a specific thickness. We do not offer contouring, moulding or shaping operations.
Re-saw service is not currently offered. We may be able to do saw-planing for you, if you have larger pieces that are a little too rough. Straight edging operations are also available in some cases. Call for details.
All custom cuts and surfacing work is done by appointment, as dictated by our current workload. Same-day turnaround is generally not available.
For milling slabs & cookies, we charge a $60 set up fee + $1 per diameter foot (minimum of $2) x length per cut. For example, a 3’ diameter x 7’ long log = $3 x $7 per slab + $60 set up.
For dimensional lumber, we charge $75 for the first half hour, $120 an hour after that.
Our base rate for surfacing and other shop work is $25 per 15 minutes + tax.
These fees include inspection of wood condition, determination of cuts, metal detection, and the necessary equipment and personnel to get the job done.
We do not currently offer delivery of products or finished millwork or transportation of any raw materials to our yard.
