Walnut Processing at Horizon Mills

At Thorogood Timber, we believe that to get the best products you need to go to the best sources, so we only deal with producers that appreciate our exacting criteria and share our commitment to delivering quality.

This means maintaining close, long-standing relationships with suppliers and our buyers regularly visit our select group of carefully chosen mills to learn more about new stock and see the processes used in production.

Shot during a recent trip to Horizon Wood Products’ mill in North Western Pennsylvania, this video shows the way that American Black Walnut logs are processed into “through-and-through” boards for wide furniture stock…

Our own “premium” American Black Walnut and American Cherry are cut in the same way; the process beginning when Horizon chooses the very best logs, which are then steamed before being carefully kilned and inspected. The laser guided process and complex machinery used means that the best possible yield is achieved from each felled tree, with the result being beautiful timber ready to produce stunning worktops, wooden flooring and mouldings.
