Solid Timber

A beautiful natural material, joiners often combine solid timber with CNC machining to produce intricate components.

Solid Timber Manufacturing

Timber remains one of the world’s most beautiful natural resources. It’s a material that often finds its way into architecture, design and fitouts, making it a popular choice for joiners, shopfitters, sign makers and cabinet makers. Through CNC machining, solid timber becomes more malleable than ever, and many workshops now use 5 axis CNC machines to add further value to their work and to shape the future of the industry.

Producing valuable components with complex and high quality finishes requires the use of specialised tooling. Panel Tools offers a range of tools suited to joiners who manufacture solid timber components using 3 axis and 5 axis CNC machines. Our range of products is supported by a custom tooling service that allows clients to design tooling for specific projects and manufacturing processes. Working with your team, Panel Tools can design, specify and supply custom CNC tools that unlock the full potential of your equipment and provide more flexible manufacturing than ever.

Raise The Bar On Quality With Our Custom CNC Tooling

The Application

  • Profiling

  • Morticing and Tenoning

  • Jointing


When producing profiles on the CNC there are three main objectives: consistency, efficiency, and a high-quality end-product. Depending on the profile and the capabilities of the machine, Panel Tools can offer tailored solutions in solid carbide, braised tip, replaceable tip and diamond to work towards each of these objectives. A focus for improving the efficiency of profiling operations is to combine and eliminate processes, this can be achieved by doing multiple elements of the profile with a single pass or a single tool. Stacked tooling systems are one example of this.
