You have always treated me well and in a prompt and professional fashion. You have always helped with any problems that I might. have. Your staff is knowledgeable and professional and the materials have been great. You guys run the type of business that makes me look for things I need that I can get from you. If that doesn't work (look for things I might need in the future). Thank you for giving me a place where I can buy my materials with confidence.”

“Tempered”, “Roasted”, “baked” or 'cooked' woods are exposed to temperatures of 350° to 425° Fahrenheit (about 180°-220° Celsius). They are "cooked" in a vacuum chamber so that there is no flame or burning. The process is called 'torrefaction'. There are number of positive results with tempered wood including a darker color, greater stability, feel, and tone.
