This recent project utilized very special high quality Alaskan Yellow Cedar from British Columbia. The client requested using only salvage or reclaimed lumber.  After extensive searching we located these logs that were abandoned during a logging operation several years before.


Opening the logs revealed beautiful, mostly clear material.

B2_resizeThe lumber was sawn and allowed to dry through one summer season. Moved into our shop, final dimensioning, layout and jointery cutout were begun.


B5_resizeB6_resizeB7_resizeThe finishing touches: All surfaces are hand planned. The Yellow Cedar responds by springing to life with a lovely rich glow.

B8_resizeOne minor framing unit is preassembled in the shop.

B9_resizeThe major pieces are wrapped in paper protection, moved to the jobsite and assembled.
