Learn more about Trestlewood:
by Deborah Holmes, Ebricks.com

Trestlewood II, the signature and namesake product of this company, once held up railroad tracks across Utah's Great Salt lake.

Salt and other minerals help create the colors and distressing on the Douglas fir timbers, now milled into flooring, beams, posts and siding.

Various colors found in the wood include yellows, oranges, reds, browns, greens, grays/blacks and purples. Surfacing and finishing affect final coloring. Colors are more pronounced in planed and milled boards that are used for flooring.

Flooring textures include smooth, circle-sawn, wire-brush and skip-planed.

Like all of the wood from this salvage mill, this lumber comes with its own unique history. In a previous life, Trestlewood II served as pilings on the Great Salt Lake's Lucin Cutoff railroad trestle.

Wood is custom milled to order.
