We mill local, urban trees that are being taken down due to disease, age, wind or development giving them new life. Over the years we have amassed an impressive inventory of hard wood slabs, A term used for lumber that is finished or planed and cut to standardized width and depth specified in inches. Examples of common lumber sizes are 2x4, 2x6, and 4x4. and beams available for purchase. In addition, we offer custom wood Milling wood is the process of making a piece of lumber flat and square so it can then be made into furniture. to your specifications and offer A chamber having controlled air-flow, temperature, and relative humidity for drying lumber. The temperature is increased as drying progresses, and the relative humidity is decreased. Freshly cut green lumber may be sold green or first dried in a kiln to accelerate removal of the moisture in the wood. Drying wood in a kiln is an art to ensure that the wood dries evenly to retain its strength and aesthetic properties. Different species dry at different rates. Kiln dried lumber commands a higher price than green or air-dried lumber. drying upon request.
We cater to the real craftsman or discerning professional seeking material that is color-matched, grain-matched, book matched or sequenced in custom and hard-to-find sizes.
OUR SAW MILLS
Peterson is known for developing the first Automatic Swingblade Mills. Our Peterson ASM cuts slabs up to 60″ wide and 20′ long. It can also dimension 10″x20″ cants to 1″x2″ The product of the saw and planing mill for which manufacturing is limited to sawing, resawing, passing lengthwise through a standard planing machine, crosscutting to length, and matching. Lumber is simply solid wood that has been sawn to a particular size. Traditionally produced from very large diameter logs, lumber is now often made from logs as small as 8 to 12 inches (20 to 30 cm) in diameter. Lumber is always measured, bought, and sold based on nominal, rather than actual, sizes. Measurements are affected by moisture content and, in the case of hardwoods, by whether boards are surfaced or unsurfaced. Board – lumber that is less than 38mm standard (2in. nominal) thickness and greater than 38mm standard (2in. nominal) width. Dimension – lumber with a thickness from 38mm standard (2 in. nominal) up to but not including 114mm standard (5 in. nominal)and a width of greater than 38mm standard (2 in. nominal). Dressed size – Dimensions after being surfaced with a planing machine. The dressed size is usually ½ – ¾ in. less than the nominal or rough size. Factory and shop lumber – lumber intended to be cut up for use in further manufacture. It is graded on the percentage of the area that will produce a limited number of cuttings of a specified minimum size and quality. Nominal size – As applied to timber or lumber, the size of which it is known and sold in the market (often differs from the actual size). Rough lumber – lumber that has not been dressed (surfaced) but has been sawed, edged, and trimmed. Shipping-dry lumber – lumber that is partially dried to prevent stain and mold in transit. Side lumber – a board from the outer portion of the log – ordinarily one produced when squaring off a log for a tie or timber. Structural lumber – lumber that is intended for use where allowable properties are required. The grading is based on the strength of stiffness of the piece as related to anticipated uses. Timbers – lumber that is standard 114mm (nominal 5 in.) or more in least dimension. Timbers may be used as beams, stringers, posts, caps, sills, girders, or purlins. Yard lumber – lumber of all sizes and patterns that is intended for general building purposed having no design property requirements..
