After the boards are sanded on both sides they get
stacked then sorted. Max insists on doing the sorting himself.
He makes the final call on which boards get used in each piece
based on color, texture and character.
The boards get cut on the CNC router and then sanded
along their edges.
In the photo Rick Umpstead is sanding a stack of
bench frame boards on their edges. This is very time consuming,
but it's the way we keep our consistent quality level.
