Hatchet Mountain Forest Products is a small independent manufacturer of natural edge slabs in hardwoods and softwoods. We also do V-bit and 3D carvings on small boards and large slabs. We are located in the Redding area of Northern California. Our natural edge slabs include California Black Walnut, California Black Oak, California White Oak (Valley Oak), Live Oak (Canyon), Incense Cedar (clear and pecky), Ponderosa Pine (blue stain), Sugar Pine, White Fir, Douglas Fir, some Old Growth Redwood slabs from stumps and other local species as they come available. Blue stain is sometimes referred to as blue pine or denim pine. Slabs can be procured at the air dried stage (green to 20% EMC) or kiln dried (8-10% EMC). Our CNC Router can flatten large slabs, leaving only the sanding, assembly and finishing to the customer.
We normally do not hold flattened slabs in inventory; we complete the product when ordered. There is some delay time. We do maintain an inventory of natural edge slabs, some flattened.
We do a variety of
unfinished V-bit carvings for the DIY woodworkers. They are done on
kiln-dried natural edge planned boards from local species. We also have
blank natural edge boards for the imaginative woodworker. We can do
custom V-bit and 3-D carvings both unfinished or finished.
