The term ‘Mill-Run’ is used to describe a proprietary grade where the quality of the production is essentially not graded, and the resulting quality of the material is as it develops from the log.

‘Mill-Run’ is accumulated at the sawmill when cutting certain sizes. If the mill does not want to separate the developing grades, the material gets stacked and sold as ‘Mill-Run’ under the industry terms ‘mill-run clear’, ‘mill-run common through clear’ and ‘mill-run common through shop.’

‘Mill-run clear’ will produce the longest pieces of clear wood fibre, interrupted by occasional knots that may – depending on the requirement of the buyer – need to be trimmed out.

Most buyers will chop ‘mill-run common through clear’ and typically recover clear pieces 600mm and longer.

‘Mill run common through shop’ develops in a similar manner with the exception that the ‘No. 4 clear and better’ has been graded out. There is still a good percentage of short clear recovery when chopped.

Features:

  • High percentage of clear wood fibre including vertical grain
  • Kiln dried
  • 100% PEFC certified
  • Some knots present – sound and tight / loose / dead / holes
  • Occasional pieces are not correctly sized – may be slightly narrower / wider / thicker / thinner than stated
  • Some pieces exhibit wane
  • Occasional splits
