Our new Castle face frame clamp arrived in our shop just recently. It is not the biggest machine, nor is it the most technologically advanced machine–but it is an extremely well built machine that will see a lot of use and will help us, as a company, more efficiently create a better product.
An under-utilized domestic softwood, Aspen is easy to work, it is an excellent substitute for more expensive woods, and it reproduces prolifically. Commonly used in toothpicks, and pulp, Aspen can also be a great choice for millwork, furniture, and veneers.
