Redwood Burl Slabs 4
Redwood Burl Source, just what does that mean? That means that we go out of our way to make sure that we are sourcing only legally harvested, salvaged or reclaimed California redwood. Here at Redwood Burl Inc., we go beyond the typical social and environmental considerations and practice what we like to call ethical sourcing. Ethical sourcing means ensuring that the products being sourced are created in safe facilities by workers who are treated well and paid fair wages to work legal hours, and that the supplier is respecting the environment during the production and manufacture of the products. From timber products to precious jewels to coffee, many consumers pay close attention to the sources of the products that they purchase.
Social & Environmental Aspects of Wood Sourcing
Most of our clients are concerned with the social & environmental aspects of the wood sourcing. They are willing to pay a higher price for higher quality, responsibly sourced wood. When we get a large order, we are able to pull it from our existing inventory. We don’t have to scramble to source the material after the fact, from non reputable sources such as poachers, as some people in this business tend to do. We have been stockpiling wood for years and have acres of cut slabs air drying, plus what we have already kiln dried.
Once you have your slab picked out, we can fit rustic style bases to any of these wood slabs. We specialize in working with woodworkers, homeowners, weekend warriors and all lovers of the rustic solid wood furniture look. Our inventory contains thousands of salvaged redwood slabs, so please email or call us with the dimensions you need for your project.
Rustic Wood Slabs
The rustic look usually means the wood has a live edge and tends to have defects in the wood such as small cracks, knots, curly or burly grain. If you want a perfect, defect-free piece they are available but not common. Please let us know how we can help with your special project.
