Curly redwood mantels

This section of mantels consists of dry, cured pieces.  The premium curly redwood mantels are dry 3 years and are stable ready to install.  All these mantels have spectacular curly grain.. The greener the wood the more chance of movement and cracking after installation, especially in drier climates. These curly redwood mantels are well seasoned and are stored indoors. Tops and bottoms are planed very cleanly and have natural unfinished edges. We can trim and finish to your specs or do it yourself. We also can do corbles as shown in our photo gallery here.

Redwood slabs all sizes

See more at the wood shed. These slabs can be purchaced unfinished for the listed price or finished and a base added.  I have far too many in all sizes to list them all. These pictures show that we have bar tops and table tops, as well as desk tops and project wood. Sizes and shapes vary as do prices, which depend on grain and other qualities of each individual slab.


New stock-- new selection. Lots of natural or live edge. It ranges from hobby wood to longer boards, hallway table tops and other interesting pieces. Lots of figure and color!! One of my favorite woods because of the extreme variety of the grain. I`ve been buying myrtle from Oregon for over 35 years. At one time myrtle was the only wood I worked for a living, doing clocks, mirrors, cutting boards, turned wood boxes, and vases. The wood I have is a mix of dimensions from years of collecting, and wood we now mill ourselves for specific dimensions. Slabs, turning stock, and live edge wide boards.

Western Maple

See more at the wood shed. I`ve never seen or had this much nice maple!!!!  We have thousands of board feet of curly maple, fiddleback maple, and quilted maple boards for sale. 4/4 and 8/4 now in stock.  We use figured big leaf maple for hand mirrors, weather stations, turned bowls, vases, boxes, barrettes, and turned clocks.  It`s 3-dimensional grains are quilted, fiddle, burl, and curly, which can be a combination of all of the former.  I also have a good selection of  natural edge burl for rustic fire place mantels and natural edge table tops

Table Bases

More at the wood shed. The picture on the table bases page is of a tall maple burl base for a dining table.  I have lots of redwood root bases in all sizes as well as buckeye burl coffee and dining table bases.  Most are dried for years, and all are fumigated.   These take time and care to dry properly.   I only use dry stable wood for our work.
