What is the difference between WHND soft maple and WHAD soft maple?
WHND soft maple is commonly called ND maple, or "Wormy Maple." ND maple may have small piths or holes that do not affect the strength or integrity of the wood. Because of its unique grey streaks and flags, ND maple has become popular for hardwood floors, kitchen cabinets, paneling and other applications. WHAD soft maple (or AD Maple) does not have any piths or holes in its clear cuttings.
What is S2S?
S2S means Surface Two Sides. Our planer has cutter-heads above and below the board, so we surface both sides to a specified thickness in one pass.
What is SLR1E?
SLR1E means Straight Line Rip One Edge. This is when you straighten one rough edge of a board. Smaller shops tend to use a joiner and larger mills such as Maley & Wertz use a Straight Line Rip Saw. A laser line shows the operator the path of the saw blade and a chain feed pulls the board straight through the cut so no guide (fence) is needed. This is a very efficient and fast way of establishing a straight, square edge on lumber.
What is S4S?
S4S means Surfaced Four Sides. It refers to standard dimensioned lumber such as 1x4, 2x6 and so on. S4S is always produced in a moulder so all surface faces and edges are very smooth.
