Fresh From The Mills

Our inventory of Sustainable Northwest Wood is ever changing. See what has recently arrived and get your special piece before it's gone.

We love when a new order arrives from one of the dozens of local sawmills, fabricators and small businesses we work with.   Opening the lumber wrap to peek inside is always an exciting moment and we often gather around to ooooooh and aaaaaah and get a waft of the amazing aroma of fresh cut wood.  

This time the Good Wood comes from the ice storms of 2019 from a beautiful woodland reserve that rarely harvests any trees for lumber.  The Elkton Reserve is an active participant in managing its forest for ecological conservation and restoration values in partnership with the US Fish & Wildlife Service, the Oregon Department of Forestry, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). Through the NRCS Healthy Forests Reserve Program, any tree removal could not come at the cost of providing vital habitat to the recovery of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) listed Northern Spotted Owl. 

When the ice storms came through, they reached out to us for help.  We coordinated with one of our favorite hardwood mills in Southern Oregon to mill and dry the logs into dimensional lumber and live edge slabs.  You can read more about the property and the story in our blog HERE.  

Salvaging usable lumber for a higher purpose than firewood is one of the best feelings and knowing this gives those magnificent trees another chapter is priceless. 

These beauties just arrived at our shop and are ideal for making beautiful furniture, tables, benches, bar tops and more.  Visit our Showroom &  Wood Wonderland in SE Portland to choose your special piece.
