The custom milling process
Do you have your own lumber, preferably kiln dried, that you would like milled into T&G flooring, T&G paneling, or mouldings? We offer a full range of options, including pre-finishing, for all custom milling services.
Our 8-step process, included with our standard rate is:
Surfaces lumber to 15/16” if needed
Gives boards a straight edge on each side
Tongue-and-grooves, adds the bevels, and kerfs the backside (depending on profile of customer’s choice)
Manual Chop Saw
Removes areas of defects per customer’s specifications (e.g. very rustic, clear, etc.)
Tongue-and-grooves board ends in 3” increments to maximize yield, and aids in tallying up the finished product
Has 4 in-line wide-belt heads to efficiently sand the product in one pass to a 220-grit finish
Pre-finishing (Optional, with additional charge)
Clear or stained to customer’s specification.
Bands individual pieces into manageable, uniform bundles, 8’ long and lineal-foot-tallied if pre-finished.
