    Flamed Redwood Sighting

    I don't remember if there is a thread for ridiculous wood, but I saw this today at the place I now purchase wood from.


    It's raw edge flamed redwood. Yours for the low price of $5,800.

    Hahaha it was like 10ft tall. Big enough the picture is distorted from my phone.

    Anyone want a dining table for $9k shipped? I'll make it happen!

    the curl is not tight so it woudl not look good on a knife handle but for sure a table woudl be sexy as hell (or a bar)

    Agreed - I have two billets of curly redwood and scale of the curl is just too big for a knife handle.

    I'm pretty sure the other problem would be that the handles would be like $15-20 each, wholesale. No idea why they are asking you to pay for the entire redwood and get one slab of the pretty stuff.

    The left side has that cool 3D crushed velvet look to it though.

    What is the name of the store?
    I need to start selling slabs to them.

    Most curly/flamed redwood has curls too wide for handle material.
    I look for stuff with curl narrower than my pinky.

    Yeah, that would look amazing as a table or bar. When I was in Washington state recently, a couple of places had tables from Heritage Salvage out of California. They were made out of a slab of chocolate acacia and had a nice live edge.

    Brazos Forest Products. They mostly just sell insane quantities of lumber to people.
