About Us

Although Bear Lodge Custom Millwork may be a new name to some, our expertise with millwork and wood stretches back over 30 years. Our founders James Moore and Everett Follette met over 33 years ago when they were both working at the Pope & Talbot sawmill in Spearfish.

Everett started out in the Planer department, moved to the filing room, and then spent time in the shipping department before assuming the role of Pellet Plant Salesman. Everett’s wife Tami works for Farmers Insurance in Spearfish.

James began his Sawmill career at the Planer, working as a lumber grader, moved to shipping, and ran the railroad reload, before taking on and transforming the moulder program. He then became Planer Superintendent overseeing the planer, moulder, and dry kiln.  James and wife Casey are owners of the area’s premier steakhouse, Buffalo Jump Steak House in Beulah, WY.

Both native to the Black Hills area and fans of working together, the two decided to take a leap of faith and start a new adventure- Bear Lodge Custom Millwork, named after the scenic Bear Lodge Mountains on the northwestern edge of the Black Hills National Forest.

The Black Hills area has a rich history in the lumber industry and our founders have been a part of that history. Their many years in the lumber and wood product industry helped them establish strong relationships with quality vendors and ultimately learn the intricacies of quality millwork. These relationships, expert knowledge, and experiences have been carried with them to Bear Lodge Custom Millwork.

As locals of the area, they are passionate about this area, and those who live here. Their goal is to provide beautiful, quality, custom millwork that you and your family can enjoy for generations to come.

Their passion for quality millwork and finishing is evident in the time and care taken completing each project that comes through their doors.
