From the truck - to the showroom

Our showroom is FULL of wood. But it's not as easy as dropping skids with a forklift.... here's a peak into what KJP does to provide all this beautiful wood for our customers! 

Our most recent shipment. This was about 2/3 of what was on the truck. 
Skid by skid, lumber that is 8ft or less in length is brought into the warehouse by forklift. Note: the warehouse, not the showroom. 
Generally everything else is brought in by hand... 
These Zebrawood 'cookies' are huge! Glad we had the forklift for bringing these into the warehouse..

Each board is brought from the warehouse to the workshop (by hand), then individually planed so you can see the grain. (skip dressed) The final step: bringing the new wood into the showroom and individually pricing each board. 
4/4 and 8/4 Nogal - Just in
4/4 Padauk & 8/4 Yellowheart - Just in
Visit our What's New page for the rest of this shipment. We added over 25 tons to our inventory - your next visit will certainly be different!
