BRC Lumber

BRC Lumber

Founded in 1873, BRC began by making wagon spokes and hickory tool handles one block from the court square in McMinnville, TN.  Today we still provide the finest in Hardwood products and related services.  This year we have expanded into manufacture of plywood products as well.

We have always been known for our quality and service and that tradition continues today.

We currently produce our Appalachian Hickory striking tool handles, hardwood upholstered furniture parts, hardwood bark landscape mulch, and now, custom cut CNC plywood parts for upholstered furniture.  We also sell kiln dried hardwood lumber.  In addition, we can do custom kiln drying and certified heat treatment for export packaging materials.

Manufacturing Processes (molding, casting, machining, fabrication, etc).: We have the capability to provide hardwood and plywood parts of virtually any shape or size.  We can also insert t-nuts and spring clips where needed.  The skilled craftsman in our hickory handle department can turn anything from a tack hammer to a 40" ditchbank with heavy lacquer or tumbled wax finish.  Local pallet and crating shops come to us for certified heat treating of their export shipping materials.
