The picture to the left shows two pieces of bookmatch weeping willow 5' wide at the top. Just a couple examples of the unique possibilities using timber from non-comercially harvested sources. John's Urban Timber specializes in extracting mother natures beauty from logs that would normally end up getting chipped or turned into firewood. Go ahead, browse the site and get some ideas for that special log or project you might have in mind.
This Beautiful Timber Was Almost Firewood
A New Life Awaits
This is just a sample view of what some of the logs look like before I get started. To the right is an 11,000 pound, 14' white oak. Behind me, on the bottom, is a very nice 10' red oak. To the left are some smaller mixed species that were destined to be firewood that will now become furniture stock and table tops.
Where specialty is normal and unique is everything.
In this picture, my left hand is on the butt log. My right hand is on the next section up from the butt end. These two pieces are very unique sugar maple. They may look ugly and deformed on the outside, but will be even more beautiful on the inside once they're sawn and dried.
