Big Wood Slab Sale/Moving Sale Sept 29-30
« on: September 10, 2017, 01:21 PM »
When:
September 29-30, 10 am - 4 pm
Sunday October 1 by appointment only

Where: 1114 Barberry Place, Port Moody, BC... wood shed around the right side

1,500 board feet of air-dried hardwood slabs. Live-edge. $5 - 700 per piece.

FULLY AIR-DRIED AND READY TO USE

All of the wood has been air-dried for at least five years and is stored in a dry environment, so it is ready to be used. If you're not familiar with working air-dried wood, I think you'll find it to be a treat. The drying process has not been rushed, so there is less tension in the wood. This means less risk of warping in the future. Air-dried wood also feels less brittle. It cuts smoother, and this is particularly evident if using hand tools.

TWO LIVE EDGES INTACT FOR UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES!

I have been careful to preserve the live edges. Whether you are making a dining or coffee table, mantel, headboard, or chopsticks, you will have the option to leave the bark intact, remove the outer bark only, or cut off the entire live edge for uniform lumber. The slabs have been moved and stored either on end or flat, but never on edge.

I SAW THE WHOLE TREE, THROUGH AND THROUGH!

My inventory consists of sets of slabs that together comprise an entire tree. This is useful because it makes matching grain and colour easy. This means that you can bookmatch two sequential boards for perfect continuity without resawing and losing thickness, or ensure all the drawer fronts look consistent. This also means that you'll find beautiful flatsawn grain patterns, riftsawn wood for straight-grained legs, and quartersawn wood for a straight-grained look and stability.

Plus, you'll find some nice wide slabs, perfect for table tops.

DOMESTIC HARDWOODS, SUSTAINABLY HARVESTED

This wood is from BC trees. Many of the species are not commercially available or easy to find. I helped mill much of it, and have worked with all of them and can share my experiences.

Please come by to have a look. Cash preferred, but I can also accept credit cards. Sorry - no debit. Delivery can be arranged if required.
