Wood for Furniture Manufacturing
MTE supplies furniture manufacturers with the Oak, Pine, and Maple wood necessary to build tables, chairs, dressers, cabinets, and other pieces of furniture. We also have Beech, Cedar, Aspen, Hickory, and many other kinds of wood – everything you need for your wood furniture manufacturing business.
From sturdy structural woods for couches to elegant walnut for armoires and cabinets, 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 for targeted harvesting of the healthiest populations from our diverse forest. 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.
Wood Cuts Available at MTE
In order to satisfy the diverse demands of the furniture manufacturing industry, and as a matter of sustainable harvesting practice, we provide our customers with a selection of useful wood cuts to expand each tree’s usability and to minimize waste. Among the wood cuts 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.
Wood Types Available for Furniture
- Ash – The Menominee forest is home to a variety of ash species. Ash is a hardwood with a straight grain which is easy to stain
- Birch – We have two varieties of birch, which is a light colored hardwood resembling maple in aesthetics
