Tilo's services & offerings
Architectural Millwork & Mouldings
From small custom jobs to large-scale projects, Tilo delivers:
- precision-cut moulding using the most advanced technology available
- high quality and consistent in both the raw material we buy from reputably environmentally suppliers and the finished product you receive
- attention to craftsmanship you won't find at a large supermarket-style lumber yard
Standard and Custom Moulding Profiles
They offer a large variety of moulding profiles, from astragal, crown, dentil and beaded insert moulding to banisters, flooring, cabinetry and window sills, all in a wide variety of wood species.
If you have an idea or a sketch, but can't find the match in any catalog of standard profiles, Tilo can take your sketch, CAD drawing, photo, rendering or existing sample and develop a custom moulding using leading edge technology.
Moulding Sanding -- Finish-Ready
All of the millwork and mouldings Tilo makes are smooth and chatter-free because of their precision technology and high level of professionalism. Un-sanded, their moulder-run product has a superior, smooth finish. Rotating knives do make cutter marks--which are different from chatter marks. Their moulding sander will assist in getting rid of the cutter marks, giving you finish-ready mouldings.
Standard or Custom Radius Profiles
Any one of Tilo’s standard profiles can be made into a radius profile: trim for an arched doorway, curved cabinet trim, chair rails for a curved wall, a rounded hand rail for a staircase, or to replicate a historical feature. Once your custom profile is created using in-house tooling, they can stock that profile as a proprietary profile for your business, and your business only.
Edge Glued Panels
Edge gluing is an effective way to create a large, dimensionally stable panel of hardwood for creating a seamless and solid appearance. Tilo glues pieces of wood 1 1/4" to 5 1/2", matching the grain and color to create a one-piece look. Custom butcher block style tops are available per the customer’s request, using a specific species or pattern of species, or to suit a particular size.
A value added service that especially compliments our craftsman quality edge glued panels, panel sanding brings a completely smooth, finish-ready feel and appearance. Using a state-of-the-art wide-belt sander, they plane and sand the panel and can accommodate most any grit finish you need.
Laminated panels are often used for functional, high-use applications, like in tabletops or table legs, when one thickness of a material is not enough to achieve the desired thickness. A thicker product is created by stacking the wood and laminating it.
P.E.T. Cut-To-Length Parts
Tilo has great relationships with manufacturers of table legs and other production parts who appreciate the precision in P.E.T. cut-to-length blanks. Tilo can quickly shape these blanks to your design. This speeds production and efficiency in their customer’s manufacturing process.
