It is our intent to present you with an accurate representation of who we are and what we do. I started this company in 1991 after 16 years of making Mountain Dulcimers. That experience enriched my appreciation for fine wood and woodworking.
It was my dream to create a lumber yard that supplied quality wood for fair value. Starting out with a phone and pickup truck, I have logged (no pun intended) thousands of miles, connected with hundreds of woodworkers, visited numerous mills large and small, toured logging camps in the outback, and invested my life into this enterprise that you see before you.
Tour these pages to see what this actually encompasses. We look forward to your call or visit
and hope to continue providing the best material and service possible.
Alaskan Yellow Cedar (AYC) Found along the Pacific Coast from Alaska to Oregon, Yellow cedar is a magnificent wood with excellent wood working properties. It glues, nails, screws, stains and takes paint well and can be brought to a fine finish. Alaskan Yellow Cedar is suitable for sidings, ceiling treatments, saunas, hot tubs, boats, cabinets and high grade architectural millwork. AYC is an excellent substitute for old growth redwood.
