Huckaba Custom Design sells cut lumber and pre-cut carving blanks prepared at the Huckaba mill in Montana. Kipp specializes in beetle killed Pine boards milled from locally salvaged Beetle-Kill Pine trees. The unique blue tones in the beetle-kill pine, otherwise referred to as Blue Pine, is very popular for creating natural wood furniture products.


We also use mostly Montana-sourced Douglas Fir and Ponderosa Pine, and offer USA hardwoods when requested for a finer, less knotty finish. Wood species in stock can vary so please check current availability with Kipp.


Our metal sign hanging brackets are found in this section.
