The trees were felled by Pavel McGlave on December 11, 2021
The logs were hauled to Cody Wayland's shop the same day. Cody is a sawyer and builder who also runs a dehumidification kiln.
Cody milled most of the logs. We let some those boards air dry for about eight weeks. Then about 1200 board feet, mostly maple and some of the alder, have gone in to the dehumidification kiln. We're expecting those boards to be ready at in late April / early May.
The base crotch of the Maple was sawn using an Alaskan Mill. Those boards and boards from the base logs of the Alder are being air-dried with the intention of the wood being available for the 2023 and 2024 shows.
If as a maker, prior or aspiring exhibitor you would like to obtain some of the wood to make a piece or pieces for this year's show please contact us via this application form
