Wood and Wood ProductsLumber Logs is an urban log recycler in St. Louis. We collect lumber-worthy logs that normally would end up being ground up, burned or buried in a landfill and see that they get a more noble end. We select a few logs that deserve to be more than pallets or RR ties and have them sawn into the lumber listed below.
We have live edge slabs, wide boards, crotch pieces, turning blanks, 4x4s, 4/4, 5/4, 6/4, 8/4, 12/4, burls, more.
All lumber is random width rough sawn and either kiln dried or carefully air dried or drying. We stock uncommon species - all from the St. Louis forest - so the buying experience is closer to the adventure of an antique store than a trip to a big box outlet. We offer excellent value and variety.
We are open the first and third Saturdays of each month from 9 - 11 am with no minimum order. All other sales are by appointment. We no longer ship; all sales on site.
Cherry, walnut, oaks (plain, rift, and quartersawn), quartersawn sycamore, maples (hard and soft, plain and figured), aromatic redcedar, poplar, ash, osage orange, cottonwood, locust (black and honey), elm, sassafras, mulberry, cypress, river birch, kentucky coffeebean, hackberry, hickory, spalted lumber, willow, ginkgo, buckeye, basswood, catalpa, box elder, pecan, persimmon, gum, turning blanks and crotch pieces.
We sort our lumber into four pricing categories:
A+ - for extraordinary boards of exceptional figure or width,
A - for Select or better in grade,
B - for #1C, and
C - for best value for small projects or parts.
Not all species have all four price points.
NOTE: Add 25% to these prices for any dry piece that was cut 3+" thick. (This applies mainly to dry turning blanks and 4x4s).
