We offer quality select and better hardwoods that are dimensionally thick, clear, flat and straight allowing our customers to increase their profit margin. Our customers find that the quality of our hardwoods, and our actual thicknesses increase their yield per board foot which adds to their bottom line. We also offer very fair price points on our by the board foot hardwood pricing and some take advantage of our special order pricing for 100 board feet or more of a particular hardwood for further discounts. Whether your job calls for 150 board feet or you are looking for short stock or some pen blanks, you will find that our hardwoods a priced right and are dependable in terms of quality. We offer most hardwoods rough sawn usually as a preference due to not wanting to take valuable thickness away before it can be jointed or surfaced. If jointing, planing or wide belt sanding is desired, we can due that for you as well.
We specialize in Black Walnut slabs and in rough and surfaced boards that are kiln dried but never steamed. Un steamed Walnut exhibits the color and palette of hues that the "Great Spirit" intended. Steaming Walnut is used widely and is a process developed in order to turn the white sapwood of small trees khaki brown but this process also destroys the unique and wonderful beauty of North American Black Walnut. If you have looked at the Walnut available from say, Owl, you will know the drab and hideous appearance of steamed Walnut as opposed to what we can offer you.
