Redwood is something that we are convinced not many people know much about. It's a all there in the name: red. But in fact there are a huge variety of colors, grains, and areas from the redwood that make it a pretty incredible wood. Also rest assured that all of our redwood is salvaged wood. We mainly work with old root systems, salvaged railway pilings, old flooring etc. It is a soft wood in slab form, so we aren't fans of using it for tables, but any of the tighter grain wood that we get from the root systems is quite hard and some of the grain is mind blowing.
