Myrtle is one of our specialty woods, as it is grown and harvested right here in our home state of Oregon, hand selected by us, trucked to our yard, and carefully milled in our facility. Myrtle wood is renowned throughout the Pacific Northwest for its excellent machining and finishing properties as well as its beautiful color, spicy aroma, and figure. Also known as Bay Laurel, California Olive, Pepper wood, or Spice tree, this versatile hardwood grows only in Oregon and Northernmost California. Colors range drastically even in the same log so that a range of color from golden yellow, green, black, brown, tan, and violet can exist. Each blank is unique, making each project one of a kind. Burl or fiddleback is a rare quality that very few Myrtle trees possess. Myrtle wood is great for the beginner and expert alike. This material is from a stunning, 4-1/2 ft. diameter log that was cut right here at our facility on the World’s largest Wood-Mizer during the summer of 2016. You can even see this being milled in one of our YouTube videos! There is deep, exquisite curl in many of the pieces. Stock is kiln dried and ready to use. Myrtlewood works extremely well. We have extra slabs available for tables, counters, etc. Please call to inquire about these additional products. An occasional surface check or pin hole may be present. When aged, this Myrtle will look very similar to Hawaiian Koa once it is exposed to UV light.
