Description: The millwork industry, which includes manufacture of doors, windows, stair parts, blinds, mouldings, picture frame material, and assorted trim, can be a lucrative value-added opportunity for sawmills. Those entering the value-added millwork market often find that it is a great opportunity to generate greater profits from upper grades and utility species, such as yellow poplar. In the past, approximately 75 percent of mouldings and millwork were made from softwoods, while the rest were made from hardwoods. However, this picture has been changing due to old-growth harvesting restrictions in the Pacific Northwest. More and more opportunities are being created for Eastern hardwoods.
