redwood lace burl wood


Everyone should stand in an old growth Redwood forest at least once in his or her lifetime.  The sheer splendor will take your breath away and the surrounding air smells so organic that you can smell the life teaming in it.   Figured Redwood lumber can also take your breath away, especially Lace Burl, perfectly suited for fine furniture projects and musical instruments.  Plain Redwood is a good utility lumber for outdoor and construction projects.

  • Figured Redwood is used for fine veneers and lumber
  • Durable outdoors
  • Species threatened by over harvesting
