Appleton Custom Lumber

Listing #205   Listed on: 12/01/2008

Appleton Custom Lumber is a "Mom & Pop" operation started in 1994 with a B-16 Timberking as a part time operation. Started to provide cedar lumber for our own shop operation. After leaving a 20 year industrial job we started sawing full time after hurricane Opal hit us. Sawing jobs began to come from every direction and with the help and blessings of God we were off and running! Soon customers were requesting kiln dried and planed lumber. We purchased a Nyle L200 kiln and a Logosol PH260 moulder/planer, bought a new B-20 Timberking Bandmill and built a 2000 sq. ft. shop for the new equipment. We have a 100 mile radius that we custom saw for customers. We can now take the trees from the stump to a finished product for our customers. We can be reached at 251-966-5786.
 
700 bd ft of Red Cedar T&G Paneling ready for pick-up.

  Here is some Long Leaf SYP 1X10 flooring we did for a customer. Turned out very nice.

  Our Green Lumber /Log hauler. Fresh stickered 1 X 10's in front of it.

  This is the end from which the kiln is loaded.

  The PH260 Logosol waiting on some more lumber to keep it company.

  A charge of dried lumber ready to come out of kiln and into the PH260 for some T & G paneling.

  With the log squared into proper cant, sawing the 1 X 10's.

  1X8 Spalted Poplar a fellow Sawyer brought for drying and milling. Going to be a beautiful wall!!

Hello Mr. Merritt,
I was scanning the web and came across this page. I've visited your facility a couple of times and it's just as impressive in person as the pics you have listed here. I'm drawing up home plans now, so I look forward to getting that cedar from you! Thanks alot, Matt.

my hobby is wood working. Do you sell wood to people like me or is it just for big users. I'd like to buy small quaintes just for my own use. Good wood is hard to find in my area. Thanks

Hi:
I live in Baldwin County. We are building a home and I am looking to purchase some antique longleaf heartpine beams or decking and have it milled to wide boards. Do you do this? How wide can you mill T&G and/or just straight boards not T&G and what is your fee?
Mark

Hello,
I'm looking for some 8/4 and 4/4 soft maple- would you carry this ? If so, what is the price ?
Thanks

I am looking for a variety of hardwood for personal woodworking use. Rough sewn is ok too. Cherry, walnut, ppl, maple, padauk. Would you have any exotic woods? Do you see small quantities and is there a price list? Thanks.
