Northwest Timber specializes in highly-figured hardwood lumber, such as Quilted Maple, Figured Claro Walnut, and Oregon Myrtlewood. These rare and beautiful woods are sought after by furniture and instrument makers around the world. The highly-figured Quilted Maple lumber is perfect for acoustic, electric, and arch bass guitars, as well as violins and mandolins.
Our hardwoods are individually selected and graded for their unique figure and premium quality. A large amount of lumber is kept together through the entire milling and drying process. The 12" and wider boards are sawn in sequence and numbered into bookmatched sets. This allows customers to buy color-matched hardwood lumber for their furniture building projects.
