It’s Brazilian Cherry Beam Day at our mill in Brazil, or as some of the guys call it “Workout Day”. These long, hard, and heavy Brazilian Cherry beams give both the guys and the machines a good workout. This specie is not only strong but also nearly last forever outdoors in various climates. Need a long lasting, super strong hardwood for an outdoor structure, pergola, entrance way, or other exterior beam design element? Give us a call as we ship these in job lots or container loads to job sites around the globe. These are 3×6 beams but we are also milling 3×8, 3×10, 3×12 and various other sizes to order.
Our sawmill in Brazil just finished cutting some live edge slab flitches. A flitch is more than two consecutive cuts from the same log. This gives your project that unique book matched grain (a mirrored image) and similar color/figure throughout the entire project.

It’s the last month of 2016 and we continue to bring exciting news and new products to all of our facilities. Each one has something very amazing to share that will bring a wider variety and faster order processing for our customer’s benefit.
End grain is not often talked about and is a neglected part of your deck. You don’t think about it when you’re making your precise cuts. It’s only after you see some checking and cracking that you begin to really think about what effect the end grain has on the entire board.
These are the top 5 issues that usually arise from end grain neglect:
Our Florida location originally purchased a Woodmizer LT 50 hydraulic for processing logs.
We quickly realized that we needed something bigger and better. We have recently acquired a Woodmizer WM 1000 capable of cutting logs up to 67” wide. It’s the only one of its kind in the entire state of Florida. This allows us to mill giant logs!
The week after Thanksgiving was always a big deal growing up for me. It meant the trees came out of the box (yes, my family had artificial trees) and the lights went up outside. We decorated the front of the house, the walkway up to the front door, the bushes, and even the deck. The house was not complete until those red and green lights were wrapped around the deck railings.
After much anticipation, our slabs of Brazilian Cherry (Jatoba) and Tigerwood have arrived in our factory. These slabs allow the characteristics of the tree to stand out, showing every layer from the bark to the heartwood. They are perfect for making furniture, table tops, or counters, and will create a natural, elegant atmosphere wherever the finished piece is placed.
