2000 bf of hard maple 4/4 in one kiln and coming in at an average of 18% MC so several more days out. Also in the kilns are ALL 8/4 sycamore, poplar, hickory and coffee tree! These are probably due out middle to the end of next week. We are sawing a 2500 bf of white oak special order all 1x10x12' going to NC and just about finished with it other than the drying of course. This coming week we will be sawing more cedar along with several other species!
I know it's HOT outside BUT sure does make drying the lumber go a lot faster!!!! With this heat the kilns have to be vented to keep them from rocking off the foundations!!!
More logs delivered over the weekend, the live edge slabs sales are crazy! Stay tuned there will be more info coming soon about the open house.
8/4 Poplar, Hickory, Coffee Tree and sycamore in kilns now! We had semi load of cedars delivered the other day, should be good on cedar for a while, 53,000 lbs of cedar logs.
More Walnut and Cherry coming out of kiln 2 this week. Last week we sawed over 3000 bf of 4/4 maple. Today we hauled more hickory, ash and maple logs in! We also sawed several custom orders last week. It really seems like the custom sawing part of our operation is picking up along with custom drying.
Take a look at these photo's! We sawed around twenty 8' slabs that all have this figuration!
And the HUGH cedar slab!
I need to know if anybody is interested in some really nice quarter sawed 4/4 KD sycamore? This is FAS 1 face grade, lengths 6' plus and widths 4" plus for $3.75 bf? Let me know if you want some, this may be coming our way within the next two to three weeks!
I have added a lot of new and some update "customer projects" photo's on the web site. Please look at it and if I missed you "sorry" send me photos again, some of the photo's I had a hard time coping. Also if you want any more info like phone numbers, web sites on there let me know.
