Ordering Procedures for Interior Trim

Providing the shop with a specific cut list of finished pieces is the best way to guarantee that they deliver the pieces needed for the job. For a premium, you can obtain all-heartwood, all-sapwood, or color-matched boards for uniform color in glue-up work and throughout the job. Also, the millwork shop can plane the stock on one or both sides, joint one or both edges, and sand one or both faces as needed. Generally, the millwork shop can dress the boards far more economically than a contractor can in the field or in a small shop
