We offer surfacing services for customers interested in quickly moving their project to the next phase. Surfacing (similar to planing) is the process used to completely flatten a rough-sawn slab. In addition to smoothing down the rough sawn marks from the mill, this process removes any warping or twisting that occurs from the drying process and saves a ton of time during the finish sanding process.

Flattening a slab with a palm or belt sander can be tedious and will produce uneven surfaces. Our surfacing service will save you time and will provide a flat surface to start working on.
We can surface your material(s) down to your desired thickness if it is not badly warped/twisted. Sanding is still necessary after surfacing to ensure a smooth surface.
Our on-site surfacing machine is comprised of a router head mounted onto a gantry that can handle material up to 72” wide and 196" long.
