yes, putting it into the single size width. This is because other machines or not as precise and also cut cut out defects from boards that are wider. For the mill this proceedure is thus improving the output.

Very interesting, Marcos. We are in similar fields. My brother and I manufacture moldings. Do you have any lumber companies that you ship to in the Appalachian Mountains or Eastern Seaboard? We buy from a number of people in that area.

moldings, hmm, maybe that is some other type of wood, we do mainly the ipe specie, I don’t believe this would be an appropriate wood for moldings (not good for paiting and to hard to finish or nail). We do ship to the USA, but nowadays exports are pretty downsized, nowadays more to India, Turkey, France and Korea.
