Welcome to Vanderhoof Specialty Wood Products

Finger jointed lumber

Finger jointed lumber products are manufactured by taking shorter pieces of quality kiln-dried lumber, machining a “finger” profile in each end of the short-length pieces, adding an appropriate structural adhesive, and squeezing the pieces together to make a longer piece of lumber. Although finger jointing is used in several wood product manufacturing processes including the horizontal joints for glulam manufacture, the term finger jointed lumber applies to dimension lumber.

Platinum pellets is used primarily as heating fuel but due to its 100% all-natural wood fiber with NO additives or preservatives, it can also be used for equine bedding and feline litter.
