Olsen Lumber

Jeff Olsen intercepts logs from the waste-stream by establishing networks with tree service companies, municipalities and properties throughout the Hudson River Valley. A careful salvage logger and portable sawyer, Olsen's eco-friendly approach of utilizing pieces he considers "too good for firewood" has the interests of woodworkers in search of specialty hardwood lumber. Logs are flitched in sequence producing rough cut live-edged slabs in various thicknesses and widths having a distinct visceral appeal.
