Making Flooring in 2 Steps
Step 1, Plane the dried lumber. One person feeds, the other takes it out and stacks. That’s Chris feeding.
Step 2, the lumber is fed into the shaper. This is trick. I haven’t showed you the machine because Merv designed it and built it to work the way he likes it. This machine trues the wood (takes the crown out), trims it to width, then does the back cuts, shapes both sides and does all this in a single pass.
Out comes perfect flooring!
