Cain Millworks came to us when they needed white oak for a two-tier bar that was to be installed in Nobu Caesars Restaurant. They wanted 3” thick finished lumber and were struggling to find it.
We sent them photos of a series of white oak slabs that came from the Chicagoland Area, and were milled and kiln dried at our North Chicago yard. White oak dries best in the 1”-2” range and Cain Millwork was able to use two slabs, double the thickness, and produce 3” thick end slabs glued up for the bar top. They obtained 14 slabs from Horigan UFP and because these slabs were from the same log, the continuous live edge front was possible and looked uninterrupted. Cain’s shop had the know-how and talent to produce the bar. The attached photos speak for themselves, and the end result is stunning.
The Problem: White oak lumber was needed in thicknesses that are not easily sourced
The Solution: Horigan UFP provided a series of slabs from the same log to be used for the thickness needed.
