Wooden Boat Building Lumber

Boat lumber is usually very high grade wood. Boat builders like very dense grained old growth for their projects. They cannot use kiln dried stock because the cellular structure of the wood changes during the drying process and cannot withstand constant use in water.

With air dried old growth recycled lumber, the high grain density, stability, and consistency of the reclaimed wood is ideal for boat restorations and construction. We remill boat lumber to your specifications.

Crossroads had a great time supplying timber for the restoration of the Schooner “Wawona” and Tugboat “Arthur Foss” in Seattle. We really love these old boats.

Viking Boat

From our friend in Port Townsend, Ron Myhre, who carved the prow of this beautiful Sugar Pine Viking Boat:

“…it was a one-off happening in San Diego for the epic series The Vikings on the History channel. Took place on the roof of a hotel in San Diego during Comic-con 2013 transforming the rooftop into a Viking Village to celebrate the first season of The Vikings for the cast and crew.”

Kudos and credits to Master and Commander Jay Smith (Aspoya Boatworks) Anacortes, WA, traditional Norwegian Boatbuilder and project manager, Dan Packard, Port Townsend,WA, and carver, woodworker, Jack -of-all-trades, Ron Myhre, friend of Pacific Northwest Timbers and Crossroads Lumber.

“Ron is in training in the Norske tradition, the 26th generation to the Kings throne of Norvay, Ronaldo Johannes Myhre. Marc Mandel, world renowned purveyor of all things wood, supplied the much favored wood of choice for this project, Sugar Pine.”
