Originally a favorite for making hubs for wagon wheels, American elm wood has enjoyed a rich history in this country as it was used for barrel staves, trunk-slats, and hoop-poles, and became fundamental to the manufacture of wooden automobile bodies. This beautiful, twisted and fibrous wood holds screws unusually well. Despite certain areas of the country being decimated by Dutch Elm Disease, common uses still include:
- Cutting Boards
- Hockey Sticks
Our Elm has been locally sourced and dried down to 5% before being stored in our dry-shed under humidity control to ensure the highest quality material for your project. All our material is planed down to the sizes shown below.
