Wood Species

We stock several different species of wood, in several lumber sizes.  The most popular wood we stock is Ash, Soft and Hard Maple, Red and White Oak, Cherry, Walnut, and Mahogany.

Table Tops

We want to help you understand the terminology used when talking about solid wood table tops.  Solid wood tops come in either plank or butcher block form.  Plank form refers to the lumber in the raw form that we receive it from the saw mills.  Butcher block refers to the look achieved when we cut the planks into multiple strips of wood, then turn the pieces 90 degrees placing the end grains face-up.

Next to understanding solid wood tops are the terms full length or butt jointFull length refers to pieces that are cut to the exact length of the top. Butt joint is a term to describe small pieces of wood that are jointed together to form a longer length top. See below for reasons why a customer would need or want to use a butt-jointed top. 

Mainly for three reasons:

1)  A solid piece of lumber is not available for the desired table length; thus needing to join small pieces together to achieve the target dimension. 

2)  Using a butt-jointed top creates unique and appealing table tops. 

3)  The customer is hoping to maintain cost effectiveness (using butt-jointed pieces creates less lumber waste).

Maximum size for tables (for minimum quantities): 
 
63″ x 156″ – Anything up to 63″ wide, we can do 156″ long (13 feet) 
75″ x 96″ – Anything over 63″ wide, we can do 96″ long (8 feet)

Finishes

Having our own in-house finish room allows us to match any color specification, or even help our customers create unique and individual colors. We also have great options for customers who want a standard, but beautiful stain color. Highlighted below are the 8 most popular customer-chosen stain colors. All of these stains are presented on Ash wood.
