Once milled, lumber will dry in our solar kiln for roughly six weeks, where temperatures can reach up to 120 degrees even in the middle of a cold winter.
Slabs are dried in our bank barn for a year to six months, then kiln dried for another month to six weeks.

Custom Made. Quality Made. American Made.
Milling the logs
Custom built to fit your needs from a kitchen table and benches to an entertainment unit with end tables to match, we include you in the design process to create your unique piece of furniture.
Here at Red Barn we apply a Tree to Table philosophy. From start to finish we handle each tree through the necessary steps to create one of a kind, quality hardwood furniture. We let the natural beauty and soul of each tree shine in our finished products. The glorious features of the wood are enhanced and put on display just like a beautiful work of art in a gallery.
We use two styles of sawmill to cut our lumber. An Alaskan sawmill is suitable for our Slab materials. A standard Woodmizer bandsaw mill is utilized for dimensional lumber. Each method applied enhances the natural beauty of the lumber, bringing out unique wood grain elements.
