Standard Moldings Run to Order in Other Species
If you wish to order a stock profile in a wood other than poplar, we have the capability to run to order in a full range of other species available from local lumber wholesalers and from across the country.
Lumber is divided into 2 categories:
Softwoods are milled from conifer or evergreen trees that shed their leaves year to year.
Hardwoods are generally heavier, harder, smaller in size and slower in growth than softwoods.
According to uniform industry standards, all hardwoods and softwoods are kiln dried and cut to 8-16' lengths.
As a natural product, wood has many variations in color, length and width as well as defects such as knots, pitch pocket and sapwood. All of these normal properties are graded into the species by the hardwood and softwood industry.
Some sizes may be difficult or impossible to obtain in a certain species, some species may be in short supply, or the cost of certain materials may be impractical. Furthermore, we may not be able to procure materials with strict requirements for color, grain, pattern or cosmetic appearance that exceed industry standards. In this circumstance, we may request that you bring your own material for us to mill. We do not run recycled or used material in any form.
Run to order wood species include:
