Slabs Galore!

SJSU Elm

SJSU Elm

We have an incredible amount of slab material drying in our yard; approximately 50,000 board feet of local salvaged species. Trees are salvaged from city streets, universities, construction sites, forest fires, rural homesteads and other sites. Trees are removed for any number of reasons and we like to salvage them. Of course we are particular in our selection process in order to offer quality slab material. Salvaged trees are not saw logs, which means there is always imperfections or as we say, “Salvaged material has character”. There are knots, holes, bark inclusions, rot and irregular shapes which define each slabs unique personality.

Log sections are delivered to our yard. We mill the logs into horizontal slab sections which we keep in sequence for a complete boule. The slabs are stickered, to let air pass between the sections, and banded and placed in our yard to air dry for a number of months to years. When ready much of the material is then kiln dried and ready for presentation in our warehouse or online.

Salvaging trees is rewarding and inspiring. We rescue tree sections from adding to the landfill and the beautiful wood is implemented into projects. Our clients create amazing furniture, instruments and design elements from our material. The process and time is worth the reward.
