About Us

Custom timber products for any specialty need

For 25 years, Timberland Wood Products has been providing the United States and Canada with high quality building materials. We started with a small, backyard sawmill on a piece of our own timberland, and grew from there to a specialty mill that can find or make almost any type of sawn lumber required. From large timbers to custom hardwood interior trim, we can provide you with the wood products you need to complete your project on time and within budget.

Our commitment to quality means that you will be able to complete your project with minimal waste and as efficiently as possible. As a family owned and operated business, almost every piece of lumber is handled by one of the owners.

Our facility produces a wide variety of products, but the majority of our sawmill production is in Douglas Fir & Western Red Cedar, while our planer/molder’s main product is pine paneling.

To lesser volumes, we also saw ponderosa pine (pinus ponderosa), Idaho white pine (pinus monticola) and western birch (Betula papyrifera).


Glen Isaac purchased his first sawmill, a Woodland Pro 4000, in 1997, and set it up on his timbered property just south of Bonners Ferry, Idaho. Here he and his sons operated it part time until 2001. In 2001, Glen moved it to a piece of property about 4 miles northeast of Bonners Ferry, to be closer to home, and more accessible to his customers. To the Woodland sawmill, we then added a Nyle dehumidification kiln, and a Lucas swing blade sawmill. In 2004, we moved the mill again, and set it up at its current location, ½ mile east of the 3-mile intersection, north of Bonners Ferry. In 2005 we purchased our first LT70 Wood-Mizer, with a 32’ track, which we replaced with an electric LT70 in 2012. In 2021, the second Wood-Mizer was replaced with a Serra XT-135, with a 36′ track. Today, the business is still primarily family ran, with Glen and 3 of his sons all heavily involved.

What we do:

We buy logs from sources near the Oregon coast and from local sources; local loggers, log buyers, and large sawmills. Since our equipment can handle almost any size of log, we buy over-sized logs that the local large sawmills cannot cut. Then we carefully break them down with our mills, and work them up into the orders on hand or for inventory. We have been known to spend more than a day on one large diameter log; carefully trying to get the best product that log can produce. We try to keep on hand large diameter cedar, larch, and Douglas fir logs, to make them into timbers, quarter-sawn clears, and rough sawn planks, siding, and many more dimensions. We also buy lumber from local sources, and remanufacture it into various profiles with our re-saw and planer, drying it first if necessary.

We also have a full line of logging equipment, and still take on some smaller logging/forestry jobs.

Conservation statement:

Our slab edging and long butts are sold as firewood, while our sawdust and planer shavings are used in gardens, for landscaping and animal bedding. Smaller scraps are burned in our Heatmor* wood boiler to heat our warehouse/office and in a warming fire for our men in the yard.
