August 26

School has officially started, and with the start of school comes a lot of changes here at Sylvan Brandt. This year three of our young office workers started school. Jackson and Eli started Kindergarten and Titus started Preschool.


With this change comes more change in our office. Genna (also known as June) will not be in the office Tuesdays and Thursdays anymore. Instead, Kaddie will be working all day both of those days so that June can spend some more time at home with her little ones.

Now onto the mill work...The past few weeks, Tyler has been working on a beautiful new table. It is made out of our Weatherboard flooring. The table is officially done being built and just needs finished. It is a beautiful table and is definitely a company favorite. Ty made the table so that the legs can be taken on and off. This makes the table easy to transport. It will also make it cheaper to ship. We will post a finished picture once it is complete!

 
The top of the table
This week our mill workers have been working on order #9509. As of today, we are halfway done with the 465 square feet of Oak flooring.

Order #9509
 Below are some pictures from order # 9483. The customers wanted 12 pieces of Heart Pine 5/4" thick, 8-9" wide, and 8-9' long.


We write the date of the day the wood goes into the drying room on the wood. This allows us to easily calculate how long they have been in and when they should be taken out - normally about 10 days later.
Also, on a final note... have you noticed anything different? We have officially changed servers for our blog. This new layout will make it easier for us to post and more convenient for you to follow. Simply add your e-mail at the bottom of the page to be notified every time we post! Unfortunately, when we changed servers we lost all of our previous posts. Please let us know if there is a project or post that you would like more information about and we will do our best to help you! Thank you for reading!

Christmas Trees?

Can you believe that a majority of schools start back next Monday?! I cannot believe that summer is already coming to a close! It went by way too fast.

If you read our previous posts you would know that we support J.R.M.F., as summer comes to a close the next time to support J.R.M.F. will be in November when we will be selling Christmas trees! What did you say? I'm jumping the gun a little too soon? Okay, well just keep that in mind because Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, and then comes Christmas tree season!

OK now onto some featured customers!

Below are a couple pictures of the custom cabinet that was built from our reclaimed lumber. It is almost 8' tall. It is built as a base & top due to the clients need to gain extra interior storage on one side, and separate panes of glass. Isn't it beautiful?




 Next, is a picture of our Weatherboard flooring in a costumer's living room. I could definitely live in such a cozy place!
