Lattasburg Lumberworks is here to provide high quality custom millwork to custom kitchen cabinet shops, retail lumber yards, store fixture fabricators, furniture manufacturers, schools, pet products manufacturers and more!
Lattasburg LumberWorks machines several semi loads of Kiln Dried (KD) Hardwood lumber each week . The custom millwork and moulding products are machined to the very precise specifications of +/- (5) thousands of an inch.
The process starts with bringing the kiln dried lumber to the 2-sided planer (pictured on left). The top and bottom surface of the boards are skim planed (or hit or miss surfaced) to create a reference plane.
The surfaced lumber is width sawed into moulding blanks. Several different widths are ripped from the boards to increase the yield. These moulder blanks are sawed 3⁄16″ larger than the finished product.
The tooling is carefully ground using a profile knife grinder (pictured on the left). Custom templates are made with a CNC template maker to match either a wood sample or a drawing. The knife grinder operator takes radial measurements of the ground cutter heads. These measurements are transferred to the moulding machine to reduce the set up time.
The moulder man locks the moulding heads onto the moulder and adjusts the machine to produce the finished stock (pictured on the left). A test piece of poplar stock is used to set the moulder before the blanks are machined. The product may be sanded on one or both sides before being packaged for shipment. Many of the custom mouldings shown in the profile section are kept in inventory. Red Oak, Cherry, Poplar, Soft maple, Quarter sawn White Oak, Hickory, Walnut and White Elm are species commonly machined.
The final product is delivered to wholesale wood customers such as furniture makers, cabinet makers, picture frame manufacturers and hardwood flooring installers (pictured on the left). Many of the standard profiles are stocked in Red oak, Cherry, Poplar, Brown Maple, Quarter sawn White oak and White Elm. Lattasburg Lumberworks can grind custom tooling to match your wood sample or drawing. The machined custom millwork and moldings are delivered locally on Lattasburg LumberWork’s straight truck to general contractors, home builders, wholesale woodshops, furniture makers, cabinet shops, hardwood flooring installers and picture frame manufacturers.
