Come Visit Us – Monthly 2nd Saturdays Public Open House

Next Open House Event: March 9th, 2019

Events Details:

We are so pleased to welcome you to our first open house on March 9th, 2019.   It is a community minded event and a great opportunity for us to speak with anyone who has a general passion for lumber and woodworking, wants to learn more about tree salvaging and re-purposing, or is simply curious about our business as a whole.   Everyone is welcome.   We hope to foster some fantastic relationships and meet a few new friends at the same time!   We will continue to hold this event every 2nd Saturday of the month from 11am to 3pm.   But wait, there is so much more!

Sawmilling the Featured Log of the Month:

We will be milling the featured log of the month so everyone can participate in the joys of peeking into the soul of a tree!   Yes, you will be able to gaze directly into the soul of an historical Texas hardwood tree.   It is something that we see often and never take for granted.   Yet, few others get to enjoy the magic of looking into the heart of a 100-200+ year old tree.   We are here to change that!   At the mill, we like to say that “It is a like Christmas every time we saw into a new log.”

Free Blanks & Bargain Bins:

We also will be offering FREE wood turning blanks and have a bargain bin of high figure woods available.    We may even have a few slabs in our Refined Elements inventory offered for quick sales.

In preparation, we are making a dedicated effort to salvage a few smaller high figure, high character logs for the purpose of offering them as FREE turning blanks.    We do ask a few small favors.   First, you must be a Newsletter Member in order to qualify.    Anyone can join.   The newsletter is intended to be community minded and informative.   Not to mention, a 5% coupon and special promotions.   Second, we ask for a VOLUNTARY minimum contribution of $20 for any blank.   Or take one for FREE but any additional blanks and you need to make at least a $20 contribution per blank.   What does the contribution go towards?    Please continue to read below.

We will be cutting these logs into sections and splitting them into halves along the pith(s) as practiced by most woodworkers and turners.    Many of these will be very large blanks measuring 18-24″ wide x 18-24 long.   Our expectation is these will be sought after items and someday very beautiful turnings or an other unique art forms.   100% of the contributions will go to directly support the maintenance of our tree salvage equipment.   We literally spend $1000’s a month to maintain our trucks and heavy construction equipment.   Any contributions, no matter how small or large, will financially support our genuine desire to bring more and more of this material back for future monthly open houses.   Hopefully we can also increase the diversity of the species and the volume of blanks we can offer every month!   Basically, it is a circle of tree salvage love!!    Not sure if that makes sense to anyone.   Yes, we are sometimes weird about saving trees!

Thank you!

This event has been evolving for over 2 years now.  We cannot stress just how excited we are to meet new, like minded individuals.   We will call it a complete success if we put just one smile on a face!
