Solid Sawn Timber

Solid Sawn Timber

Solid-sawn timber, or heavy timber, is timber cut from a single log. The most common species for these applications are douglas fir, western cedar, and southern pine.

There are trade-offs when deciding between the use of glulam or solid timber.

Structural properties, responsible forestry, and cost effectiveness of very large cross-sections & lengths favor glue laminated timber.

But for hand-crafted, bespoke character, nothing compares to solid timber.
