Milling

Our slabbing mill has been precisely designed for cutting large timber. It has the capacity to cut a slab up to 60” in width. From designer counter tops to boardroom tables- our machine allows us to get the most out of the valuable timber that has been recovered. We can then preserve the smooth and natural edges of the timber slabs.

Kiln Drying

Our company uses the 10,000 BF Hardwood dehumidifier Nyle System Kiln.  The Nyle System Kiln is best known for their innovative dehumidification dry kiln systems, which are the most energy efficient.

All our wood slabs are kiln dried at our mill to guarantee timber stability in your home environment. We measure the moisture content from the deeper layers of the wood slab to assure a moisture content of 8% or less. This process ensures stability so that the wood will not warp, cup or crack after treatment. Drying is an intricate process and it requires constant monitoring by a kiln drying specialist. Drying time varies by species and by size of the slab. The correct kiln drying is the key to our custom furniture lasting for generations.
