We saw hardwood logs both at your location and at our shop.
Due to Covid 19 safety concerns we are not offering onsite sawing at this time! All sawing work will be completed at our shop in Mankato, MN.
By custom cutting your logs you can get exactly the sizing and thickness you wish. Need some advice? We can help by giving you lots of advice on how to get the most from the logs you have.
We meter every board/slab on both sides in many spots. It is common that thick material can require 2 passes through the kiln to dry. The slab is allowed to acclimatize for at least 1 week (1 month is preferable) between passes. This allows the moisture content remaining in the slab to equalize which improves the overall drying for the second pass. Both passes are included in the price quoted above.
For extremely thick pieces that require more than 2 passes through the kiln to dry, each additional pass required after the 2nd will be charged at the above rate.
We are offer custom wood furniture design. Using either your wood or ours, we work with you to design and build custom heirloom pieces that will last generations. With all of our work we emphasize the natural beauty of the wood we use.
An estimate for number of hours will be given before work begins.

Are you new to having logs sawn or lumber dried/milled? Have questions on how the process works?
We have our own local artisan designer/craftsman who can work with you to build the custom, heirloom furniture you have always wanted. Learn about the process and see the possibilities!
So how much is it going to cost me?
Every job is different and is billed on an ala-carte basis. Before any work begins, we will review the full process with you including estimated costs.
How long will my job take?
We will go over scheduling with you when booking your project. Sawing jobs can usually be scheduled within a week or so. Kiln drying jobs typically only take 1 or 2 weeks in the kiln; this does not include the time until a spot opens up. The timing for furnishing are variable; 6 to 8 weeks is common.
We pride ourselves in customer service. We have many years of working together with our customers to find the best, custom solution for their needs. Give us a call or send a note and try us out!
