Peter Hölbling is a peaceful soul, but loves nothing more than saws with a bite like a shark. The sawmill has a lot in common with a hair salon or a kitchen: you simply can't get a good cut without sharp tools. A good saw-cut from our workshop is as smart as a new hair-do, fine and even. If you run your finger along a saw-cut Mareiner board you will notice it feels a little rough. That's the way it should be, as oils and glazes can penetrate deeper into the wood.

The cut of the band-saw roughens the surface of the wood. The result is an even and fine saw-cut look.
