YRM has the right recycled lumber for your green building project. We operate a modern lumber processing facility and are hyper-focused on using every reclaimed or salvaged timber to its maximum potential with minimum waste. We have equipment to cut and edge your order to meet your requirements; all of our machinery is operated by Mike Yankin or his trained employees who take great pride in their work. We also have relationships with local mills and craftsmen with whom we can outsource any of the detail work, such as crown molding, lathe milling, or kiln drying that may be requested. Your order is carefully prepared according to the dimensions, edges, and surfacing as agreed. Finished lumber is carefully stickered and protected from the elements while awaiting shipment.
We cut most of our indoor material of this kind in ¾”-1” thick and widths from 4”-24”. Material wider than 8” normally has shallow back-cuts to prevent cupping or warping following installation. Often this material has an edge finish like tongue-and-groove (T&G) and smooth surfaced face (S12E), and is available in various lengths from 4’-20’. Typically the lumber facing comes in mixed-grain, but you can specify all vertical grain for a premium if desired.
Our outdoor material is milled in thicknesses of ¾”-2” and also available in widths up to 24” and lengths up to 20’. The thinner materials greater than 8” wide will often have shallow back cuts to prevent warping. Typically this material is resawn (aka rough sawn).
Our structural lumber is available in a wide range of dimensions from 2”-36” in thickness and width and lengths of up to 40’. The freshly-cut salvaged redwood logs can be cut into massive timbers up to 36”x36”x30’. Reclaimed redwood material can also be found in extra-long or extra-large dimensions not typically available with new lumber.
We can cut salvaged redwood slabs from our logs to your dimensions. These can be 4” to 12” thick or more and up to 6’ wide and over 20’ in length. Many times our customers may ask for at least one “live edge” on these slabs which can further enhance the one-of-a-kind nature of these rare cuts. These slabs and burls are used to make single piece doors and tabletops, bar tops, mantles, bar faces, and more; the applications are only limited by your imagination.
