Our Oliver Strait-o-planer combines facing and surfacing in one to remove unevenness, twist and bend. It can surface down to a minimum thickness of 1/2″ and maximum width of 36″. Surfacing produces uniform boards free of dirt and ready for production. Color and grain patterns are more easily spotted. Reduces sawdust and costs associated with waste removal. Simplifies scheduling. Saves time and labor.
RIP 1 EDGE (R1E)
Straight-line ripping allows you to work off one straight edge in order to maximize and control board dimensions to best fit your specifications.
RIP 2 EDGES (R2E)
By ripping two parallel edges (R2E) you get moulder-ready, millwork-ready blanks that can go from our trucks immediately into production. Our machines can rip 1/2” up to 3-3/16” thick and 3/4″ to 24” wide boards. We take care of the labor and waste. Accuracy in job estimating and ordering increases with pinpointed LF costs.
BLANKS & S4S BOARDS
For customers with moulders, we offer defect-free, pre-sized dimensional moulder blanks surfaced and ripped (S2S/R2E) to your specifications. With an additional pass through our moulder, we can produce surfaced-four-sides (S4S) dimensional boards with a precision finish.
CUSTOM MOULDINGS, IN-STOCK PROFILES
Using our CAD program, CNC template making, and custom knife grinding technology, we can create custom mouldings and profiles for any project. Create your own or choose from thousands of in-stock profiles in our online moulding catalog serving a variety of manufacturers.
PRIMING – BUFFING – SANDING
Control costs and times with premium priming, buffing and sanding services for mouldings and dimensional lumber. We can prime 3-sides or all 4-sides of S4S or custom moulded lumber. Buffing primed millwork provides a smoother finish and ready-for-installation product.
Our Baker horizontal band resaw slices rough lumber into thin strips in a variety of thicknesses–ranging from 10” to ¼”. Ideal for glue-ups, resawing thick lumber, reduces waste factors by increasing yields. Our resaw can handle up to 17″ wide. It employs an exclusive ‘wheel and guide’ system that prevents the saw blade from wavering during cuts, minimizing uneven and “thin-ended” boards and providing the most uniform cut possible. We use premium quality blades with a thin 1/16″ kerf for accuracy and greater yield.
With a fleet of trucks driven by our experienced drivers, your lumber will arrive safely and just-in-time. With weekly routes throughout the Mid-Atlantic, as well as points north, south and west, our company-owned curtain-sided trailers protect lumber from the elements and offer efficient, easy off-loading. We also have several small maneuverable flatbed trucks for fast, local deliveries. We do our best to accommodate deadlines that fall outside weekly delivery schedules. And when necessary, we have a trusted network of LTL carriers for national and international shipments.
