new resaw capabilities

We are excited to announce a new service being offered at our Buhl location!

Lumber going through Baker Model D resaw In November we purchased a piece of equipment called a Baker Resaw, which is a horizontal industrial band saw attached to a conveyor system. It is designed to split dimensional lumber and wood cants into boards of various sizes.

With the ability to process material dimensions of 16 in. by 16 in. square and up to 20-ft lengths, this saw provides diversification to our wood plant capabilities.

Customers are now able to purchase custom-cut shop services including pallet wood, packaging components, industry dimensional lumber and more.
