Lumber Hits The Ground

Arrived Early Morning

Weather in the Rockies is always a concern.  Especially when you are waiting for a load of lumber on the back of a large semi.  The weather window for us was Sunday Morning Early.  Cold temperature and clear skies makes for great snow covered road conditions.  When the temperature is close to zero tire have much better grip for these big trucks.  Over 10,000 lbs of premium grade Mother Earth hit the ground.

Sitka Spruce (Kiln Dried)

In this shipment we received several thousand board feet of premium quarter sawn 8/4″ Sitka Spruce boards with some as long as 14 feet, random widths.  Straight beautiful grain ready for your next project.  This is instrument grade stock.

Port Orford Cedar (Kiln Dried)

Port Orford Cedar is my favorite wood to work with.  It machines beautifully, smells like heaven when working with it, strong and produces excellent tone qualities.  Very hard to get and over 6 months of waiting to get this load.  If you are a lover of POC then don’t wait and get yours now.

Alder (Kiln Dried)

This bunk of 8/4″ Alder is PRIME graded and comes to us Surfaced 2 Sides.  Great for Luthiers making electric guitar bodies, craftsman working on high end homes and more.  Nice stuff.

JHT Lumber Order Ready for Pick-up

Until we can get this lumber on the website if you are interested in board ready to ship reach out to us by phone (307) 690-0427 or shoot us an email at “sales@jacksonholetim.com”.  We are here to help!

 

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”.

ROUTER JIGS FOR FLUTE MAKERS

In the coming weeks we will introduce to those of you who want to set up shop with one of our custom designed Router Jigs.  For more than 20 years I have tried many designs and the ones we use now in our shop are just simple easy and accurate to use.  With one of our jigs you will be able to route 3/4″, 7/8″, 1″ and 1 1/8″ flute bores all in the same jig.

Buy your flute blank stock in lumber form, billets, or pre-cut billet halves.  If you have an accurate table saw or small drum sander you can make your own blank stock or buy for our coming inventory of halved billet stock.

JHT LUMBER

It is worth mentioning again that we are one of the few small specialty wood suppliers that focus on Old Growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar, Port Orford Cedar and Sitka Spruce.  Our Alaskan Cedar boards are the BEST Mother Nature has been able to grow.  We spec out ONLY instrument grade lumber and pay a premium to bring in large hand selected bunks of timber.  All of our lumber comes in width of 10 -12 inches and boards as long as 16+ feet.  No order is too small so order a single board or an entire truck load… we can help you get what you need.

If you have interest in talking about a jig or sourcing your own lumber reach out via email to “sales@jacksonholetim.com”.  In the meantime our first shipment of routers are on the way.  These routers can be difficult to find and our last order for a single router just got here and we ordered it in October 2020.

Alaskan Yellow Cedar Is Now Shipping

Just a snap shot of a couple of orders shipping tomorrow.   The first order above is a single board and two billets heading to a Luthier down in Texas.  The second order below are three 32″Long  by 10″ Wide boards all cut from the same board.  This is heading to a flute maker in Colorado.

Even though this comes from our rough cut stock we try to surface orders 2 sides like these on our Oscillating Drum Sander prior to packaging.   This is some beautiful cedar we have acquired here in our shop.

If you are looking for really nice Alaskan Cedar reach out to us as most of our lumber is not on our website.  No order is too small or too big.  Watch for the announcement when our Sitka Spruce and a new bunk of Port Orford Cedar hits the ground.

NEW CEDAR HITS THE GROUND IN WYOMING

The Lost is Found…

10″ Wide 8/4″ Vertical Cut Old Growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar Boards

I am always on the hunt for the best Alaskan Yellow Cedar I can find.  This Bunk of Lumber was no exception.  I was offered a small bunk of 8/4 Boards that are ALL 12″ WIDE! Some are 16 ‘ feet long.  This bunk of premium, very expensive AYC boards represents the best of the best Mother Nature can muster.

Without hesitation I committed to purchasing this bunk and I needed to get it to my shop as soon as possible.  You do not find boards this nice all that often especially this wide.  So it shipped via Semi and somehow ended up in Grand Junction Colorado rather than Afton Wyoming.  Fortunately it landed at a business I know and they took very good care of this cedar until I could make the journey.

Yesterday my wife and I left the ranch at 4:20am and made our way 500 miles to Grand Junction Colorado and 500 miles back home to Wyoming.  We arrived in good shape and picked up the cedar and made our way back home arriving just before midnight.  These are very nice boards of which I will take some more pictures as soon as I can get them stored.

If you are looking for 12 inch wide 8/4 stock in premium vertical cut grain lumber this is it.  Watch for inventory to be added to our new pages for lumber in the coming days.

Sitka Spruce and Port Orford Cedar

Also coming later this month hopefully will be some premium cut VG grained Sitka Spruce and some Port Orford Cedar.  These will be premium grade materials perfect for musical instruments and specialty projects.

For more information reach out to me at “sales@jacksonholetim.com” or call (307) 690-0427.

Old Growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar Lumber

i have just secured a new shipment of true Old Growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar boards that will be here first of next week.  This current shipment includes Cedar boards that reach lengths of 12 feet and all are 10″ wide and 8/4″ thick.  This is the absolute best of the best all very tight Vertical Grain milled boards.

In addition I have secured some larger cant trims that are 4 and 6 inches thick by 12″ inches wide and up to 6 feet in length.  These too are very nice solid AYC lumber that is perfect for carving, lathe turning and other projects requiring thicker stock.

 

Cut Your Own Stock

Are you a flute builder, relief carver, specialty cabinet builder, lathe turner?  The source for this kind of quality stock requires purchases that are rather large and difficult to source.  As in years past we will ship any size order, nothing is too small.  Save money when you purchase stock in larger quantities.  No orders are too large.

First Bunk ready for pick up. Old Growth Vertical Grain Alaskan Yellow Cedar

We expect to have the first boards on the ground here in Wyoming first of next week.  Watch for new menu items to be added to our website in coming days.  Links will list pricing and specialty boards as they become available.
