Mill Visit: Was That Fast? That Looked Fast.

May 16th 2013 in Wood Products - #lumber

By Steve Harms

Recently, I had the opportunity to visit a couple of our mills last week and shot some video clips for this blog. This video shows lumber after it has been surfaced by a planer and before it gets analyzed and sorted with similar boards.

There are a few things that are impressive about this video. How about the speed with which the boards are processed? Pretty fast isn’t it? Also, there is a piece of lumber in every “lug space” or said another way, there are no missing boards. I watched this system run for quite a while – it never stopped and every lug had a board. That’s what we like to call reliability. You can experience that same reliability and consistency in our lumber products! And finally, and most importantly, this is one of the safest mills in the industry.

Who says you can’t have it all? Not us!
