DETAILS

Redwoods are the tallest living trees that have ever been on planet earth! Coastal Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) are the tallest trees, but their cousins, the giant Sequoia (Sequoia gigantium) take the record for the largest living tree in the World. In the mid 1800's logging operations commenced in the forests where these beautiful trees grow, leaving behind a path of stumps and logs that were deemed unusable. Today, stumps and logs less than 16 ft. long are being extracted from these areas. Most of this salvaged wood still produces solid wood that has been aged and slowly dried over a hundred or more years. Our Redwood is all salvaged. Redwood is suitable for large tables, bar tops, mantles, cabinets, Guitar tops, and turnings. Figured boards are sometimes available with flame, fiddleback, or burl eyes which can produce beautiful bass or electric guitars or other high end projects.

As with most veneer it will not be perfectly flat and will require proper veneer application techniques. Additionally, it is common to have 1-2” end splits and/or checks. Please expect to work with these checks. It is typical for the edges to be slightly frayed or rough (approximately 1/16” to ¼” into each edge). Please factor this into your final width. Most sheets are very clean and nice. The heartwood may contain several pin holes but they are scarce and most pieces do not have any. We will tape the ends of the flitches to protect them and carefully package for shipping.

DETAILS

Imbuia, native to Brazil, is a beautiful species that has rich colors ranging from green, yellow, and tan to dark brown.  A spicy aromatic smell is present when the wood is milled. Imbuia works well and takes a nice finish.  Occasionally there are logs with good figure such as the log in this special.  This batch of Imbuia wood is dry and ready to use. It was milled 8 years ago and has been equilibrium air dried (which is quite substantial since this wood is difficult to dry)! Blanks are surfaced on two or more sides; squares are generally surfaced on four sides.  This is very rich, dark Imbuia with nice colors, contrast, and unique patterns! Please note that this wood cannot ship outside of the USA.

DETAILS

Madrone is known as Strawberry tree, Madrona, or Madrone burl.  This is a unique Pacific hardwood that has pink & tan colors with an occasional red streak. Our Madrone blanks are highly burled & figured. Through our proprietary process, the wood has been pressure cooked to relieve tension and then partially air dried.  These pieces are ideal for gallery grade projects and high end woodworking as well as Bass and Electric guitars.
Trees are typically 10” up to 30” diameter and between 40-70’ tall.  Trunks are smooth as silk due to the tree shedding its bark continually.  Logs are rarely straight so lumber over 10’ long is a rarity.  Random trees growing in mixed stands of Douglas fir produce the best lumber as the trunk is long and relatively strait.  Trees in the open are much more bushy with many limbs that will not produce good lumber.  Burls grow almost exclusively underground and must be dug up sometimes by hand and then pressure cooked and milled.  Many Madrone trees grow in areas that have many rocks so our sawyers have their hands full milling around the rocks and dirt pockets that are present in every burl.  This is expensive due to the large number of saw blades that are destroyed and the large amount of labor milling this.
