I was in the Sacramento area last week and one of the local mills I like to visit had a California Sycamore (Platanus racemosa) he was sawing up. There were some nice sized pieces that weren’t really big enough for planks so I we cut some decent size chunks and labelled them. I figured I’d make them available to anyone interested. Since it was sawed in late July, the wood is still fairly wet.
For those of you not familiar with the wood, California Sycamore has a lot more red, pink, and peach to it than the American Sycamore (Platanus occidentalis). Here’s a couple pictures of the tree we sawed.
Here’s a couple individual pics for detail.
Message me if you’re interested in any of these. I get pretty good rates from UPS/Fedex so ground shipping should be fairly reasonable. FYI, I’m not making anything on this. Any money’s going straight to my friend Frank who owns the mill.
