Live Edge Slabs and Mantels

We keep a rotating stock of pine Live Edge Slabs and fir/larch Mantels. The slabs start at 1 1/2″ and go up to 5″ thick. The mantels can be up to 10″ thick. With the 1 1/2″ and 2″ slabs there may be some twisting that happens through the drying process but everything thicker than 3″ has been resawn to a flat surface.

Interior Trim

We offer a variety of profiles for sale in your choice of either local species or hardwoods, as well as custom profiling to match your existing profile. Our trim inventory is mostly CVG Larch, which come in lengths up to 16′ long.

Our Wadkin 6-head planer/moulder is capable of many different profiles, call us for a quote on your special project!

Exterior Siding

We offer a variety of siding profiles, as well as cutting to your specific need. Shiplap, Channel, Cove, T&G, board and batten, lap siding and more, can all be run for you out of our different species of lumber. 10″ board and 3″ battons have been a popular selling barn siding out of cedar, while we also offer a low cost 8″ board and 4″ batton out of Douglas Fir/Larch for barns. There is many an old barn that can testify to the years that douglas fir and larch lumber will last with no treatment. In fact, we can help you concoct a solution that will imitate the aged look within minutes! Just make an order, and we will give you the recipe. But for those of you who want a more up-to-date look, of course we recommend using a qualified stain. UV guard, by Weatherall Northwest is our personal favorite, and Idaho Log Finishers is our recommended applicator. If you want us to take care of the pre-finishing for you, we can do that too. We keep fascia and trim in stock in 1×4 through 1×10 in Cedar and Douglas Fir/Larch. Our S1S2E (surfaced one side and two edges) has a band sawn texture. We surface our lumber first, then run it under a band saw to get a fresh sawn texture.

 

 

Peeled Logs

You can also buy the logs before we saw them! We offer peeled logs, sized and cut to your specification. Or you can peel them yourself, and just buy the log from us. Partial machining, of course, is available also. One narrow flat edge, two-sided, or round, just tell us and we will make it to your specification. Character logs, swell-butted posts, and large ridge-poles are all possibilities.

Cut to Order

Many of the things we cut do not fit any classification. Planks, odd sizes, or whatever your needs are, we can make it happen! Our policy of charging on exact dimensions has been developed because of all our odd-sized orders. We have had multiple orders for wide beam wrapping, 1″ by up to 18″ wide to clad unsightly timbers or glue-lams. Stair parts, custom deck pieces, pergola pieces, to name a few more. We offer hand-hewing texture on many different sizes of boards, as well as our timbers. Call and let us give you a quote, it may not be as bad as you think!

Flooring

We offer a standard profile solid wood flooring in several different species. We dry our flooring to 6-8% moisture content, and most wood species get run twice, so you are insured a stable, straight product for your floor. Because of the expansion/contraction issues related to solid wood flooring, we recommend acclimating your flooring to its surroundings a minimum of 3 weeks before installation. Following is a list of some of our standard flooring offerings.

  •  Birch flooring: Standard 4” cover, rustic native birch flooring.
  •  Rustic hardwood grade, knotty birch with variegated coloring.
  •  Rustic knotty fir: Standard 5” cover, 3 and better, sorted for appearance.
  •  VG Larch floor: our flagship flooring, this is a premium B and better select vertical grain floor.

Canoes / Boats

Have a boat project you are ready to start on? Or maybe just dreaming of a cedar strip canoe? Wooden boats are a rewarding project, we can help you make that dream a reality. Give us a call, and let us help you begin! We have been providing long clear cedar for strip canoes for years already, and long clear larch is used for yacht building.

 

Timbers

We saw most of our timbers to a 2 and better, select for appearance. FOHC (free of heart center) timbers are a preferred cut, because removing the center of the log out of the cut timber minimizes the twisting and checking that naturally occurs during the drying process, especially in pieces 6″ and smaller. We do our best to cut all pieces 6×6 and smaller FOHC. In larger pieces FOHC is available by request, and for a higher price, as long as the logs on hand make it physically possible to do so. We cut to 1/8″ increments, and guarantee +/- 1/8″ accuracy.   Our mill capacities are 24” wide, by 30’ long, and our standard species are Douglas fir, larch and cedar. Our kiln chambers will accept up to 25′, and we do offer kiln drying on our timbers.
