Specialty Wood Works details its manufacturing process at its website, beginning with top grade FAS kiln dried hardwood lumber which is then rough sawn on the laser guided rip saw to the appropriate dimension for the millwork to be produced: The rough sawn millwork lumber then makes its way through the six cutter-head industrial molder to emerge as one of our many trim and molding products. A CNC router capable of high volume wood parts production and carved relief custom wood designs produced panels, arches, barrail corners, custom wood signs, and stop fluted items.
