Kiln Dried Lumber

We Kiln Dry Hardwood Lumber 4/4 and 5/4 to the moisture content 6% to 8%. Such as Red Oak, Ash & Cypress. For Southern Yellow Pine 4/4 and 5/4 is dried to 12% to 14% moisture content. The time it takes to dry is dependent on the amount of moisture in the material. The wetter it is the longer it takes. For example dead green oak 4/4 or 5/4 takes about 3 to 4 weeks. If the material has been air drying for approximately 6 weeks the moisture should be about 30% to 50%. This would take about 1 to 2 weeks to dry. If the material has been air drying for approximately 6 months the moisture should be about 20% to 30%. This would take about 4 to 10 days to dry. If you have had the material stored in a hot tin barn for 6 months the moisture content is not going to dry down to 6% to 8%. Its only going to dry to whatever the surrounding air is, which is almost always wet here in Southwest Louisiana. If you build any furniture or cabinets out of material that is going to be stored inside your house where the air conditioner and heat is on, that has not been kiln dried, the boards are going to shrink and the joints are going to open up. The capacity of our kiln is approximately 10,000 board feet in one charge. The longest material we can get in the kiln is approximately 26 feet. The kiln is forklift loaded this only takes about an hour to unload and reload.



Surfacing Operation

            We use a Buss 55 Double Planer, set up to surface the top & bottom S2S, up to 30” wide x 14” thick, after the material goes through the kiln. We mainly use this to clean and flatten the material so we can grade the material. 


Finishing Planing Operation

            We use a 24” Extrema  Double  Planer, set up to surface the top & bottom S2S, up to 24” wide x 7” thick, after the material goes through the kiln. We mainly use this to clean and flatten the material so we can grade the material. 





Straight Edge Rip Saw Operation


            We use a Mattison 202 rip saw to cut a straight edge on one edge and also to cut out blanks for the molder.



High Speed Molder Operation

We use a Hermance, Weinig & Silver molders to produce most of our moldings that includes flooring, crown, base, siding, quarter round, shoe, etc… We have approximately 400 sets of knives.

Profile Grinding Operation

            We also have two profile grinders to make and to resharpen knives for the molder and shaper cutter heads. 

Situations often arise where stock molding profiles are unsuitable to complete a millwork project. Williams Wood Moldings specializes in custom and historical molding reproductions and new profile designs. We have the ability to match molding profiles to existing samples, photos, artist renderings or architects drawings. In addition, we provide our customers the opportunity to custom order their moldings in any hardwood or softwood species. The customization capabilities of Williams Wood offer the discriminating customer the tools to design, modify and complete the perfect project.

The steps in our customization process are as follows:

Computerized drawings are developed to match the desired profiles. These drawings are made available to the customer for review and approval.

Once approved, the drawings are used to develop custom knives and tooling to cut the desired molding profiles.

The customer is then offered the opportunity to select and specify the hardwood or softwood species of their choice.

The custom moldings are manufactured, carefully packaged and shipped to the job site.

Samples of the project and its required tooling is recorded and cataloged by customer name for future use.
