Curly Redwood
Redwood is in the family of the largest living trees that have ever been on planet earth! Coastal redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) are the tallest trees but their cousin, 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' 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. Redwood is suitable for large tables, bar tops, mantles, cabinets, Guitar tops, and turnings. Figured boards are sometimes available with flamed fiddleback or burl eyes and can produce beautiful bass or electric guitars. Our Redwood is all salvaged.

Cut in the 1940's and stored in a barn until recently, this classic American wood is dry, surfaced on two sides and ready to use. You will notice that some boards have more black patina than others. This is just on the surface and will surface sand or plane away if you would like to remove it. These were cut over 70 years ago!  Pieces have rough circle sawn edges. Lengths over 46” ship whole for no additional fee.
