Our Story.

EndGrain Specialty Lumber was born out of designer Michael Rupich's furniture-making process as founder of EndGrain Furniture; a world-class, custom wood & metal working design studio.  As his client base and capabilities increased so too did his need for truly unique pieces of properly milled and dried lumber and from there it became his goal to learn the process of milling and drying his own lumber as a way meet and exceed the ambitious goals of the projects he was commissioned to create. "There is nothing like making the first few cuts into a log and letting it reveal the beauty it has waiting for you. It gives us the chance to really assess the log and make all of our design desicions based on quality, not quantity or hard necessity" After years of milling and drying his own lumber for the needs of his furniture business, he began selling materials to other like-minded design enthusiasts who were looking for truly distinctive lumber that you can't always find at large, volume-oriented lumber yards. EndGrain has now grown into a multifaceted haven for unique, domestic hard and softwood products, reclaimed lumber, metal work and more.

Our Capabilities.

Located in Bloomfield, New Jersey just 12 miles west of NYC, Our 13,000 square foot manufacturing facility includes over two acres of outdoor space for milling and air-drying new cut lumber. Here you'll find our 2 thin-kerf, high capacity sawmills along with our 3500bdft de-humidification kiln, while inside our facility is three areas: Manufacturing, Raw Materials and Showroom. Our manufacturing shop is staffed with skilled craftsman from the wood and metal working trades with over 100 years of combined experience in their fields and is home to world class industrial machinery, some dating back to the 1930's, as well as the newest-technology CNC machines. Our raw materials area is stocked with milled but un-finished lumber which will eventually be worked into the job-ready materials found in our Showroom. In our Showroom you’ll find our sales office, along with an extensive display of our entire finished product suite, which includes everything from finished, hollow decorative wood beams to new milled solid and reclaimed beams, new and reclaimed wide plank wood flooring, reclaimed wood siding and ceiling materials, fireplace mantels, case goods and finished table, desk, counter and vanity tops.
