Reclaimed Western Red Cedar Heartwood

Old Western Red Cedar Heartwood Trimmed Cants waiting to be repurposed

From time to time I come across some old cants that were part of earlier jobs.  Several years ago I purchased a pallet of what were 8″x8″ trims off a big job in Oregon.  These cants where the trims off larger beams.  They were also the heartwood of the tree so I bought them sight unseen.

Examples our re-purposed Western Red Cedar Hobby Boards

I have finally decided to re-purpose these trimmed cants into boards suitable to our clientele.  Most of these Western Red Cedar  boards you will find listed on our website will be 7/8″ thick or 9/16″ thick.  Lengths are from 20″ inches in length up to 36″ in length.  Some will be resawn to 1″ thickness when appropriate.

Each board is trimmer to length based on any checking we find in the cutting of the boards.  These are great from making flute blanks, fetish stock, or other hobby projects.  The grain in these boards is hard to find in Western Red Cedar… these are really nice boards ready for your next flute building or hobby project.

These boards will be added to our HOBBY LUMBER & BILLETS page shortly.  In the meantime if you are interested in some reach out to me by phone (307) 690-0427 or email @ “sales@jacksonholetim.com”.  When they are gone they are GONE!

NEW Flute Blanks Soon to Be Ready for Sale…

After a long winter and selling just about most of our winter inventory I am just getting ready to put the final touches on this batch of new Flute Blanks.  In this batch there will be Western Red Cedar, Port Orford Cedar, Alaskan Yellow Cedar and a couple of Russian Olive blanks.  Bore sizes will vary from 3/4″ to 1″ in this batch.  All of these blanks will be available for purchase  on Jackson Hole Tim and our Ebay Store.

Old Growth Port Orford Cedar Flute Blanks with Birds Eye Maple Properties – Very Nice blanks

In this batch there will be 5 Old Growth Port Orford Cedar blanks that are all matched and from the same board.  These blanks are very unusual as they have the properties of Birds Eye Maple.  All five of these blanks will be bored at 7/8″ and will feature a slightly longer Slow Air Chamber which should make for very nice Aesthetics.  Each blank will be $52.00 each as these are very rare to come by.  The other POC blanks are also very nice but from different boards.

Any of these blanks can be secured for a commissioned flute as well.  If you are looking for an opportunity to own a truly unique flute blank then one of these five would be the ones.  If you have interest to purchase message me and we can set them aside.  Otherwise you will find them listed very soon.

Contact me by email @ timjen333@gmail.com or call (307) 690-0427.  To secure any one of these POC blanks I will invoice you for full payment and shipping.
