I mill the lumber and slabs that I use for my projects and to sell in the shop from local logs. A lot of what I mill stands out from regular lumber in some way (spalting, curly grain, wacky shapes), but I also process high-grade lumber. When I come up short, I use other local sources to make sure I have the lumber on hand for a complete hardwood selection.
The lumber is kiln dried and sold in the rough, and I can surface the lumber for you if needed. I take pride in my lumber surfacing and joint the wide face before planing for a straight and flat board. I then run one edge on the jointer for a glue-line edge. I also offer sanding on my 36″ wide-belt sander. All of the surfacing is billed at a shop rate of $80/hr.
The lumber prices on the list below are based on top-grade lumber rough-sawn. Lower grades will be less expensive. If you are planning a job, please call me first to see what I have in stock or what will be available soon. The new shop is at 1735 S. River Rd. in St. Charles, MO 63303. It is very close to I-70 at the Fifth St. exit. A map is below.
