Milling of Customer Lumber
Your dry, rough-sawn lumber can be turned into smooth, project-ready boards by Great Lakes Wood Products. Lumber can be dropped off during regular business hours and is generally milled within one week. Please keep your boards dry during transport.
Planing: Your rough piece of lumber is transformed into a smooth board. We can plane the two surfaces or all four sides.
Tongue and Grooving: Boards are planed and tongue and grooved with one pass through the machine. The tongue on one board locks into the groove on the next board forming a V-groove or bevel where they join.
Sanding: Done to produce an even smoother surface for a fine finish.
Ripping: Random-width lumber can be ripped to standard sizes. Wide boards can be ripped to narrower ones per your specifications.
