From the Forest
When the lumber company acquires trees for harvesting either through individual landowners or from industrial or state timberlands, the selective harvesting method is used. The logs are loaded and hauled back to the lumber yard where they are then graded and scaled to determine quality and use. Next, the logs are made into plank boards, and are further inspected and graded. Grading is used to determine the number of defects vs. clear spots on the boards. Those highest graded boards are used almost solely for the creation of cabinetry and fine furniture. After the grading process takes place, the hardwood planks are sent to the kiln for drying. While in the kiln, the moisture content of the wood is gradually reduced, thus helping to mitigate any cracking or warping that could otherwise occur. The kiln dried wood is then sent to our team of talented craftsmen, where they are ready to create your one-of-a-kind piece.
