Our Kilns

Our new SII kilns are built to produce! We have an initial production capacity of 90,000 board feet per batch. Using a special recipe of progressive heat and steam cycles, the moisture is coaxed out of the wood in a way that ensures minimal end checking or warping. Time in the kiln depends on the species and thickness. Each batch is carefully monitored, until it is brought to kiln-dried perfection. Our lumber is properly stress relieved, equalized, and conditioned, ready for you to craft into beautiful products.

Kiln-Dried Lumber Presents the Best of the Best

Kiln drying offers a number of benefits in producing quality hardwood lumber. Insect larva and adults are sterilized from the heat process. Expertly dried lumber ensures boards that are typically straight and true. Wood quality and consistency is better than you can get from air-dried lumber.

Options to Put You at Maximum Efficiency

Kiln-drying at our mill brings all kinds of exciting new options! Now you can have superior color match consistency, custom orders of separation by width and more!

– Choose from red oak, white oak, poplar, and walnut as kiln-dried lumber is offered in three grades: moulding grade, prime and 1 common. S2S (Surface Two Sides) planed lumber options are available as well.

– With a mere 500 board foot order minimum, we are the woodcrafter’s dream. It does not get much better than buying your lumber direct from the sawmill. And if you opt in for delivery, we will bring it right to your door.

Local Harvest, Local Craftsmanship

We love local and we serve our community at both ends of the hardwood supply chain. It begins with our harvest crew experts, who serve an eighty-mile radius of landowners with respect and dignity, sustainably harvesting the private woodland of the Pennsylvania and Maryland countryside for optimized short-term and long-term value. And at the other end of the process comes superior hardwood lumber for the craftsman experts of our region. So, whether you are a landowner with hardwood assets or a craftsman looking for outstanding lumber, it is our passion to serve up the winning combination for your success!
