Ayer MA Milling Operation
We maintain a significant stock of Douglas Fir and Cedar timbers to fill our customers’ needs. Our unique ability to custom mill either our own inventory, or timbers provided to us to fit a customer’s specific needs, enables us to provide quick turnaround for most milling needs. Once the material has been remanufactured, there is no guarantee of grade, appearance or structural value.

Surface 2 Sides — Straight Line Rip One Edge
Surfacing lumber allows you to see grain patterns and color, taking the guess work out of your manufacturing. Straight Line Rip 1-edge lumber gives you a straight edge on the boards for your employees to begin processing without having to establish a straight edge in your shop.
Both of these processes give you the Labor & Time savings to spend on other processes in your shop.
Hardwoods Rip for Moulding & Cabinet Manufacturers
Hood is the supplemental answer of “balance” to many of the moulding and cabinet customers.
Gang-rip technology saves you money by providing you with ready-to-work hardwood – there is no need for the expense of your own rip-sawing operation.
Our ripped to width products help you manage inventories you are selling out on a Just-in-Time delivery model.
Our customers decide:
- Length and Widths
- Grade of Material
Hood’s large hardwood inventories insure constant supply of quality lumber.
Every customer has unique requirements. Hood will produce a reliable product, custom made just for you.
Surface 4 Side Boards
Traditionally the best sellers have always been Poplar and Oak. We have inventories on the ground ready to S4S beyond these two traditional species.
All our boards have moulded finish providing a high quality appearance that compliments any project. 1’x 12” S4S boards available.
At Hood, we have the ability to run 10” and 12” boards, through the moulders for a wide S4S board.
This saves you time by eliminating the need for edge sanding at your shop or on the job site.
Hood Distribution specializes in creating bold, beautiful mouldings, tailored to each of our customer’s needs.
Any hardwood species are available to create your custom profiles to help design unique spaces.
Whether you need hardwood flooring, custom panels, architectural millwork, or mouldings, our millwork departments can create it.
When you combine our millwork capability with our on-site inventory of hardwoods, softwoods, and plywood, we are the obvious choice for your next custom millwork package
