We will sell any wood the tree service cuts except for Ash, which is under quarantine due to the local Emerald Ash Borer infestation.
See below for some of the woods we processed in 2015.
Please use the contact form on the left to inquire about specific woods or to request an invoice for one of our assortment boxes. If you are looking for a wood we do not have, we will be happy to try to help you find it from another woodseller.
Ambrosia maple is one of our best-selling woods. It is not a species of maple, but a feature caused by the tree's infestation by the ambrosia beetle. We also cut all sorts of maples that do not include ambrosia figure.
Bradford Pear is another one of our best-selling woods. It has a plain grain, which makes it popular for wood-embellishing techniques like Basket Illusion (David Nittmann, Harvey Meyer-style) or Pyrography (Gibsons). We sell straight or crotch grain.
Black Walnut is one of our harder to find woods. Black Walnut in Georgia is not affected by thousand cankers disease, so it is legal for us to ship ours out of state.
Flaming Box Elder
Flaming box elder, also known as ash maple, is our #1 most requested wood and another best-seller. We are more likely to be able to get you plain, white box elder than flaming, but we are always keeping our eyes out for that red!
Another popular wood, rainbow poplar is actually mineral stained Tulip Poplar. Very easy to turn, it is recommended to apply a sunscreen before finishing or use a finish with UV protection and to keep these pieces out of direct sunlight to help keep this beautiful color.
While it is unusual to find holly with large enough diameters from which to harvest turning blanks, it does happen, so let us know if you would like to be added to our holly waiting list. It goes fast! **
The first wood we ever sold and a favorite of turners near and far, we cut both wild cherry and Yoshino cherry which is an ornamental with pink or white blossoms. **
Our tree service cuts red and white oak on a regular basis. We do not typically process it for turning, but are happy to do so upon request.
We cut large amounts of sweetgum, due to their unpopular seed pods that drop all over ones yard. Coloring ranges from the dark/white contrast shown above to beautifully mixed dark heartwood with browns, reds, and purples.
We do on occasion cut fruit wood such as plum, fruit-bearing pear, apple, and crabapple. These trees typically have small diameters. Processed upon request only.
Features & Figure
We are always on the lookout for burls, interesting figure such as birdseye, and crotch pieces which frequently showcase great grain features like feather fans.
In addition to the ornamental woods already listed, we also have access to other ornamentals such as Japanese maple, Crepe myrtle, Zelkova, and dogwood throughout the year. **
Ranging from all white to white with a dark heartwood, Southern magnolia is a beautiful wood to turn. It has been another top-seller this year. **
Due to several pests common to elm, we will not ship elm with a live edge.
Out of State Woods
We try to pick up wood when we travel and offer it as limited edition items. Recently we have offered camphor and live oak from NW Florida and mesquite and Texas ebony from Texas.
