Redwood Lumber & Supply Co. specializes in a variety of lumber products, but Bowman likes the “consistently good” quality of its rough-sawn timbers. “It has always bothered me to take rough-sawn lumber and then remove good wood through planing, milling, or even resawn texturing,” he explains. Instead, his firm “gets more bang for the buck” by incorporating the timber into its projects, such as the one above. The company sources its redwood from sustainably protected forests.
