Jennifer at Far West Forest went above and beyond to help me get the product I wanted. The wood I ordered from Far West turned out even better than I could have imagined. Customer service is top notch, the product is high quality, and they are a company I will absolutely work with in the future. (from Houzz)

Great selection, amazing grain patterns and top notch service. Far West Forest is the place for unbelievable lumber.

The Madrone we purchased from Far West was some of the most beautiful burl we have used to decorate our boxes. It is a more difficult wood to work with as it needs to be sealed to prevent it cracking and splitting. For instance, we cut the burl we purchased into blocks and then either coat them with wax or wrap up in a saran-type material until we are ready to cut them into smaller pieces for drying in the toaster oven.

I’ve been using Eucalyptus and walnut acquired from Far West for my knife handles. The Eucalyptus is a really hard wood but sands nice to a pretty finish. The black walnut is a little easier to work with, as it is not as hard as the Euc., but, both woods work great for my handles.
