Wood Slices

Our Process

After thousands of cracked and messed up slices we have a process of cutting our slices to minimize  waste.    Different species dry at different rates.

Cut and Dry logs

Depending on the diameter and Species of wood, we cut logs into 3-6 foot lengths.   In the solar kiln area of our warehouse we dry these small logs for 6 months.

Slice

Depending on species and size, we use either the Vintage  12 inch DeWalt Chop saw, or the bandsaw mill, or a sharp Chainsaw. Getting them consistent thicknesses and not tearing up the bark in some cases is the challenge

Stack and Dry

In a designated part of our warehouse, we sort, stack, and dry our slices for at least 3 more months to dry slowly before offering them for sale.

Bark

The HARDEST part about drying and cutting slices is to keep the bark intact.  Letting the logs dry long enough to eliminate cracking, but not too long so that the bark comes off is difficult.
