Our Process

Our unique way of pressure cooking and kiln drying the wood allows for the least amount of volumetric shrinkage and maximum natural stability of each piece. This proprietary process was developed over 40+ years; many of which was through simple trial and error. Today, through our process using specific temperatures, psi and durations of time, we consistently produce some of the straightest, internally sound and beautiful burl and figured hardwood blanks on the market. Our large manufacturing customers truly depend on this consistency for their pool cue, guitar or knife blanks. Try one of our products and see how we compare to others.
