Wood for Furniture Making
Wisconsin's Best Furniture-Grade Wood
MTE supplies furniture manufacturers with a sustainable lumber source for tables, chairs, dressers, cabinets and other furnishing pieces. Our lumber is high-quality, sustainably sourced and affordable: the perfect wood for furniture making.
From sturdy couches to elegant armoires, MTE Wood provides the highest quality materials for the construction of furniture. As an integral part of our sustainable forestry management traditions, MTE avoids clear cutting whenever possible, opting instead toward sustainable forestry practices. This guarantees consistency in both quality and quantity of wood moving through our Neopit, WI sawmill to a wide range of furniture producers and lumber retailers.
Furniture Wood Cuts Available at MTE
We provide our furniture manufacturers and recreational furniture makers with a selection of useful woodcuts to expand each tree’s usability and to minimize waste. Among the woodcuts and by-products we offer are:
- Rough Cut Wood – An inexpensive alternative to finished lumber, our rough cut wood lends itself to added workability for furniture craftsmen.
- Veneer – Thinly sliced wood paneling commonly used on desks and tables to produce a finished look on your furniture project.
- Boltwood – These stout log cuts are well suited for rustic furniture, and can be shaped into nearly any furniture component.
- Kiln Dried Wood – moisture in lumber leads to distortion and warping, but heat-treated wood is dry, giving you the consistency needed to make quality furniture.
