Guiltless Eco-Salvaged Old Growth RedwoodWhole Burl Curly Log sunken over 135 years in Big River

Our redwood is ecologically sound; having been cut by original loggers of the mid-1800s and lain at the bottom of Big River over 135 years, this lost-treasure was salvaged by hand-wench and lift of the tides, raising the water-logged giants from the river bottom 35 feet below. Our redwood is not from second-growth harvesting.

The appeal of our redwood is that it is first growth, a different animal than 2nd-5th growth redwood. Why? Because subsequent growth, once the old growth is cut, grows from the original roots, and therefore many, many times faster, resulting in lots of small "sucker" trees, a very pulpy wood (wide growth rings, due to the rapid growth, since the roots are already established), not the dense old growth with tight growth rings. So our old growth, tight grain redwood appeals to the fine woodworker who, in my father's words, want to build something really beautiful "guiltlessly."

Although one of the lightest of softwoods, redwood provides adequate strength for many uses, as well as superior insulation values. Redwoods minute cell structure, with thousands of air filled cavities, enables redwoods thermal insulation values. Redwood is easily machined, easy to saw, nail, glue, and has superior finish-holding ability. Redwood is known for its easy maintenance and beautiful color. Redwood is often used where high moisture levels are a problem with other types of wood.

Unrivaled Shades of Color

Sinker wood is unique in its colors and grains, from deep rich purples through rich red and rosewood tints, also blond, burgundy and cinnamon brown, as shown in the pictures on this site. The result of more than 135 years in the mineral-rich water of Big River, this redwood is extraordinarily beautiful, with its tight grain and unusual variegated shades. Paneling and wainscoting is a popular use of sinker wood because of its unusual coloring. (The background image in this section is Redwood Burl.)

Own a Piece of California State History All of our wood is clear all heart salvaged old growth redwood. This salvaged sunken redwood has ax-shaved ends, meaning it was cut before the late-1800s. OriginallyAx-shaved endharvested between 1850 and 1910, this redwood falls into three distinct time periods: 1) A V-shape or "beaver-cut" meant that a log was felled with an axe between 1850 and 1876, when the labor- and time-saving raker-tooth saw was invented. 2) Logs cut with a saw and dragged to the river by mules or oxen were first shaved or edged around their circumference to prevent snagging.
