Starting The Process
... With Lumber
We deal with several types of wood, all brought into our shop at the optimum level of dryness. The rough lumber is sized into selected lengths to match furniture specifications by a pneumatic undercut saw. From here the lumber goes through quality control for defects, such as knots, cracks or other impurities within the width of the board, with the aid of a laser-guided power fed saw. This saw leaves a cut edge clean enough to laminate the lumber to proper panel widths.
... Then Panels
All panels are glued using an electric glue roller to ensure full coverage of glue between each board. These panels, once glued are placed into a semi automatic pneumatic clamp carrier where constant and even pressure insures only the best joints.
... To Sanding
After designated drying times are achieved, the rough panels are removed from the clamps to be planed and sanded by a 42" wide belt sander. This machine in one pass per side uses a spiral cutter head, 80 and 120 grit sanding heads to leave each panel perfectly smooth.
... Precision Router
From the wide belt sander the panels move to a fully automatic computerized CNC Processing Router. Here the panels are placed on a 48" x 96" table where they are vacuumed down, cut to finished size, profiled and drilled to specification. This insures each part is consistent and exact each time.
... Another Sanding
To insure complete smoothness, all the CNC machined parts are run through the wide belt sander another time. Now all the parts are assembled, with each finished product inspected and hand sanded with 180 grit paper.
Now onto finishing with our water-base conversion varnish!
