Palletized Lots Sitka Spruce Billets, Curly Redwood Billets, Tonewood, and more...

I still have a *lot* of nice wood left over from 40 years of collecting--available for pickup here on Orcas Island, or shipped via truck…
No more UPS/USPS/FedEx for me.
Enough already.


A pallet is usually 4’ x 4’ x 4’, and consistancy is the key…It’s nice to dial in soundboard plates using one tree, for instance.

All prices are FOB Orcas Island, Washington.
Email me with any questions, or more detailed info about the wood.

Lot #107:  California Sitka...

In over 40 years of cutting up Sitka logs, I have never even laid eyes on one from California.
Beautiful split, hard-to-the-fingernail, silky, with some curly figure to make it interesting.
The tree was off-center, so there are some tight grained billets and some wider grained.
Split out into 2.5"-3” billets.

40 archtop tops, plus lots of bracing.

Much dryer than most of the sinker redwood I’ve been running into lately--great for shipping.

Lot #116:  A nice stash of curly redwood for milling electric guitar sets

The grain is not tight enough (12 GPI or so) or dead-on quartered enough for milling archtop or flattop sets…but the figure is as good as it gets…

Approximately 125” of resawable thickness…8”+ faces…24” lengths…
Scaled at 40.00 per thickness inch...
