Logs, Burls, Lumber, and Veneer
We can custom cut any northern hardwood log, burl, lumber, and veneer to the size you want or desire for your larger manufacturing or individual woodworking project needs.
Logs – We thoroughly inspect each log for rot, minerals, heart size and knots to make sure we provide the best quality, most usable northern hardwoods for our customers.
Burls – While some may consider burls a ‘junk’ wood, we recognize its value and don’t waste any part of the tree. Our Birdeye Creation woodworkers use burls to make serving pieces including bowls, plates, and cups. We also sell individual or bulk burls to those who appreciate it’s unique traits. Burls are treated and stored differently than blanks or turning stock. They are waxed and kept green to maintain their features.
Lumber – We have the best selection of northern hardwoods, and we plane and kiln dry our lumber to preserve it. We also package it in a variety of sizes and quantities so it is ready for both larger manufacturing or individual woodworking customers.
Veneer – Veneer can get a bad rap as being cheaper in both quality and cost. We don’t cut corners so our veneer doesn’t fall into this category. Rather, we source the best quality veneer in sheets and rolls for any project needs.
Scraps by the Pound – We don’t waste any part of the log and sell scraps by the pound for woodworkers who want a variety of sizes for their individual projects. We are proud to utilize a whole log and while our customers appreciate our commitment to less waste, we know we are honoring the Lake Superior watershed sustainable environment.
The best quality, purest birdseye maple is sold as primo. It is considered the 'top of the line' and has the smallest shading of white. It is the most expensive of the birdseye maple because it has the highest concentration of the birdseye figuring.
With a slightly less birdseye figuring and markings, #1 is incredible quality with a slightly lower cost than primo birdseye.
There is a moderate birdseye characteristic within #2 maple and it is fairly priced for woodworking projects.
The most economical birdseye maple is #3, and it has the lightest proportion of birdseye figuring within the wood.
