Beautiful Boards

We mill rustic boards to standard cuts of 1¼ inches or 2¼ inches, rough sawn and ready for you to shape.

 

You can either purchase green boards - to dry in your abode or workshop - or partially dried, and as of 2022 we will have fully dried boards, below 20% moisture.

And yes, you are welcome to come and have a look through our stacks in person. Just say when.

The Sawmill

We mill our wood on an LM29 Norwood Sawmill, a quality American-made mill which can cut boards up to 24 inches wide.

Each board is cut with precision, keeping its live or waney edge - the natural bark curvature.

 

Milling happens onsite. We then stack and sticker the boards to ensure good airflow. The boards are covered and left in a shady spot to dry to remove the moisture gradually, which prevents movement and splitting. This ensures quality and lasting boards. 

You can choose from ash, cherry, and occasionally oak. 

Or, want your own logs milled? If you can arrange the delivery, we'll mill for an hourly rate.
