Family-Owned, Indiana Sawmill

A small-town business big on quality and service!  Family owned and operated we take pride in providing top quality hardwood products and lumber mill services. With our family name on the line, every time we send something out the door or meet with someone, we stand behind everything sold or said.  Having built a very good reputation in the industry, with our community and our customers, we want to keep it that way!

The quality of our work and wood products is maintained because we have direct control of each step of production, from selection, sawing, hardwood drying and processing into products used by our customers. We control the complete cycle of production from standing trees or logs into quality lumber, flooring, paneling, trim and molding, furniture tops, mantles and more - meeting each customer’s specific needs.  During harvesting we are careful to protect and promote healthy timber growth and forest preservation for future generations.

Sawmill and Lumber Mill Services

Sawing of our logs is done utilizing a band mill to increase yield and decrease waste.  Custom sawing of your logs, to your specifications or for the best yield is available.  We can provide green lumber for agricultural use, truck and trailer floors and much more.  Dried lumber is produced in our dehumidification kiln to a standard of 6-8% moisture content.  Utilizing a steamer, to equalize the moisture throughout the boards to improve workability and stability is performed as needed at the end of each drying cycle. Keeping 500-1000 board feet of the most popular kiln-dried species we work to maximize yield and decrease waste carefully selecting lumber for you or will let you select your own. 

Lumber can be resized, with our straight-line rip saw and 24-inch thickness planer, for your needs.  We are also able to profile lumber with multiple styles of molding knives used in a shaper, small profile planer or 5 head molding machine. Matching existing trim or profiles is also available, by bringing in or sending a sample we can figure a cost for you.

Starting in 1962, as a sideline of a trucking company (Jim hauling logs and lumber for others), Quality Hardwoods has grown over its 59 years of business from a small 12-inch planer and chainsaw to the full-service business it is today! Located in Knightstown, in East Central Indiana, we serve the entire state, as well as the Midwest.
