  • Log Yard

    LOG YARD: Harvested logs are transported to our company-owned stave mills. Our log yards are equipped with sprinkler systems to maintain the quality of the logs.

  • Quarter Bolts

    PREPPING THE LOG: Logs are debarked before being split into quarter bolts. The bolts are sent through several stations, each pass taking off a piece of wood that will be shaped into a stave.

  • Edging

    MAKING A STAVE: The pieces of wood are turned into rough staves by our skilled craftsman. They are evaluated at each station and inspected to make sure they meet our quality standards before being stacked for seasoning.
