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.
