The ability to keep up with White Oak demand continues to be an ongoing challenge, particularly when it comes to the wider widths & longer lengths. For several years, millwork manufacturers have competed with stave & veneer mills as well as the bourbon industry, (ie: barrel manufacturing), which utilize tens of millions of board-feet of premium White Oak lumber per year. To put it in perspective, bourbon production in the state of Kentucky has increased 475% since 1999!
Instead of continuing to fight this uphill battle, we knew it was time to build a better mousetrap.
After several months of research and development, we are excited to launch an all-new line of engineered S4S White Oak in widths of 7-1/4”, 9-1/4” & 11-1/4 with lengths up to 16’ long. (Yes, you read that correctly, up to 16’ long!)
