Beyond Beautiful: Introducing new salvaged walnut architectural panels

Beyond Beautiful: Introducing new salvaged walnut architectural panels

"Exquisite" is the word a local designer used to describe these plywood panels when he was privy to a sneak peek last week.  

We're happy to introduce them to you this month and share the amazing story behind them:

The walnut veneers used in these panels are from a single large tree that was salvaged in Douglas County, Oregon.  This antique tree was brought to Oregon by some of our state's first settlers, who hoped to recreate the familiar landscape of the East Coast and reap an annual bounty of nuts.  More than a century later, the walnut tree succumbed to old age and had to be removed from the property before it caused damage or injury.

This one special log yielded beautiful veneers that we pressed onto FSC Certified, NAUF cores (also manufactured in Oregon).

SPECIFICATIONS:
Certification: FSC Certified, NAUF
Available thicknesses: 1/4", 1/2", and 3/4" (1/4" on MDF, 1/2" and 3/4" on plywood)
Panel size: 4' x 8'
Veneers: 1/40" thick
Grade: Both sides with "A" grade veneers: Book-matched planks with vertical grain on one side, random-matched planks on other side

Please contact us for pricing and samples.

Fresh from the mill: Walnut Butcher Block

By KC

Fresh from the mill: Walnut Butcher Block

Brand new this week: Walnut butcher block made from locally salvaged hardwood.  These slabs feature exceptionally rich color, interesting grain patterns, and decades of performance!

Our in-stock slabs are just $50 per square foot.

Slabs are available in 6' and 8' lengths. They are sized to fit standard kitchen cabinetry: 26 1/2" deep and 1 1/2" thick.

This butcher block is made with FDA-approved adhesives that contain no added urea formaldehyde.  Slabs are unfinished and are designed to be cut and installed on-site following a one-week period of acclimation.

We recommend a food-safe natural oil, such as linseed. Walnut oil is also a good--and quite apt--choice!

Also talk to us about custom sizes and patterns for your unique projects!

Add flavor to your kitchen with fresh local butcher block, harvested from nearby forests

Autumn always reminds us of the generosity of our region's agricultural lands through the bounty of our crops and the promise of nourishment through the winter.

The forests surrounding our cities are no different: They generously provide the wood for building our shelters and keeping us warm and protected through the colder seasons.

This is why we are pleased to introduce new Oregon Hardwood Butcher Block counter tops made from sustainably harvested local hardwoods!

By sourcing our wood from salvage sources and respectful, small-scale harvesting, we are paying our respects to the forests that sustain life for so many species, humans included.

Now available in:

  • Madrone (Salvaged, Central Point)
  • FSC Big Leaf Maple (Hyla Woods, Gaston)
