What types of wood do you most often use?

I use almost completely reclaimed wood.  I find unusual and what I consider to be beautiful pieces of varying, local species as I go about my work and expeditions into the woods.  The species of wood that I most often use are:

  • Cedar
  • Maple
  • Alder
  • Rhododendron
  • Azalea
  • Madrona

It should be noted that I NEVER cut anything down.  It is most often "yard waste" and their trash is my treasure!

The only exception to this is I am sometimes hired to cut down hazard trees.

Where do you find the wood that you use?

As mentioned earlier, I get most of my wood (about 80%) from yard waste. 

I recycle and re-purpose the yard waste that I am asked to remove by my clients.

The other 20% is either given to me (people know I use it) or I barter some work for it or I find it in some of my pleasant excursions into the wild.
