Urban Raw Lumber Inventory
For you upcoming project below is a listing of the small batch lumber inventory I have available.
Salvaged from a tree that was removed due to disease. A tree removal company had hacked the beautiful wood into moveable segments and stacked them at the roads edge for bulk trash pickup by the city. I was able to salvage ~ 200 BF of this trunk in short segments. The ray fleck figure in this batch is outstanding.
Avondale Red Oak
I pass by the lot where this tree was salvaged from everyday on the way to my day job. When the demolition equipment showed up i got excited because I knew there were some interesting trees on the lot. Sure enough right before demolition started a local arborist showed up and drop all the trees on the lot. I was able to get them to leave two Red Oak and a Black Locust trunk in log form for me to fetch a few days later..
Spotted this trunk standing on a development where the trunk was salvaged during one of our weekend family walks through the area and ran home to get my chainsaw, drone, and trunk to collect this small batch of wonderfully colorful Aromatic Red Cedar,
Salvaged by a neighbor from a large section of tree that was downed during a wind storm. When he was clearing the debris he saved a large section and we milled it up for him with a portable chainsaw mill right in his backyard in October of 2016. The lumber has been air drying in our rack ever since. The combination of spalt and burl makes this batch a great accent choice.
We use a hashtag nomenclature where the name of the street from which the wood was harvested is concatenated with the tree’s species to form a unique and traceable identifier for each small batch lumber production run.
