From The Sawdust Pile
I have been in the wood industry for 57 years. From logging to finished millwork, my life has always revolved around woodworking. Some have poked fun at me saying that if I got cut, I would probably bleed sawdust.
I saw how accurate and repeatable laser engraving and cutting performed, so I thought this would be a perfect way to make the best use of such a valuable resource as reclaimed hard maple flooring from the Dan River textile mill, especially since this flooring was over 150+ years old and limited in supply. I just hated to see it tossed out.
I focused my sole attention on the laser being my main business and we no longer produce millwork since the laser's capabilities were extremely precise and efficient.
So I took the plunge, purchased a laser system and began cutting this flooring into thin pieces in the wood shop and then I let the laser do its magic. That's how I started this company; focusing on making the most out of an historic and limited resource -- reclaimed hard maple flooring. I am still amazed at the quality and precision of the laser process.
Since then, I have added on additional lines of products from a variety of substrates to meet our customers needs, most recently slate. I still customize some items now, but our main focus is cranking out bulk production of blanks for wholesale customers.
Our line is now constantly expanding to meet the ever changing needs of our customers. And as I always have done, I try to use only those materials that are American made in origin and/or are sustainable and renewable. I believe in American made. I am proud to say that our blank products are 100% American made.
If you need something custom or wholesale bulk for resale, contact us and let's talk it over. I would be very surprised if I couldn't provide what you needed.
Thank you for visiting our site. I look forward to helping you make your next customer's project a big success.
BTW, we are also on the lookout for retailers and vendors for our product line. This is a great opportunity to have a first class manufacturer like Slateworx working for you.
