What You Need to Know When Ordering

When ordering custom millwork, you need to know:

Ordering Random Lengths

All lengths are random and will vary depending on the wood species, typically from 8 feet to 16 feet. We buy our wood in random lengths and try to cut the longest lengths possible. We do try to match lengths to each moulding according to use. When ordering random lengths, be sure to include extra footage for waste or mistakes.

Custom millwork orders should always allow extra footage for waste, since shortages cannot be easily filled without additional time and set-up charges.

Ordering Specified Lengths – Specified lengths are generally available but is dependent on the wood species you are ordering. Some hardwoods are only available in certain lengths and this may limit the lengths we can make for you.

Minimum Orders – We don’t have a minimum order BUT please keep in mind that all orders incur the same set-up times and specialized care by our dedicated staff. Moulding and millwork orders under XX lineal feet will be more costly.

Lead Times – The average lead time for a custom order is 2 weeks (10 business days). If you need your order faster than this, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your rush order.

If you’d prefer to mill your hardwood lumber yourself, we also stock 4/4, 5/4, 6/4, and 8/4 in most species and stock up to 12/4 in select species.
