Sitka Spruce, Port Orford Cedar & Alder

We just received confirmation that another semi full of wonderful things from Mother Nature is on it’s way to us here in Wyoming.  We have been searching for some new treasure to add and replenish what we have sold here at our shop.

 Port Orford Cedar

 

This is one of my favorite woods to work with no matter the project.  But for Flute Makers and Luthiers it is simply one of the most wonderful woods to craft with.  I have looked hard for more than a year to nail down this bunk of POC coming to us.  This bunk is all full 8/4 stock, rough quarter sawn.  Musical grade, not common grades… this should be nice stuff.

Sitka Spruce

For more than a year I have had requests for Sitka Spruce.  Know for its straight vertical grain, Sitka Spruce is a valued wood, light, soft, strong and flexible. Sitka is used for general construction, ship building and plywood. The wood features excellent acoustic properties and is used to make sounding boards in pianos and other musical instruments such as violins and guitars.  Flute Maker should be excited to get their hands on this stock as well.

Alder

This bunk of Alder that is coming is all in 8/4 high graded stock.   Great for just about any project.  Used by luthiers, cabinet makers, and all around craftsmen.  One of the softest woods in the hardwood family and found primarily in the Pacific Northwest Alder is just a great all around wood to work with.  This bunk should be of exceptional quality – no junk.

No Order too Small

Finding quality lumber is no easy task.  Finding it at the grade that we desire is even harder and very expensive.  We have a big investment in our bunks of lumber and we hope that you will consider us as a future source for your next project.

We will sell down to a single cut board.  No order is too small.  Each lumber order is packed with corner protection so that your order gets to you in great shape.  If you need milling or surfacing let us know… we can help there too.

If you have questions give us a call (307) 690-0427 or shoot us an email with “LUMBER” in the subject line to “SALES@JACKSONHOLETIM.COM”.
