Reclaimed Fir Timbers from the Sellwood Bridge in Portland, OR

Here are some timbers we were fortunate to get our hands on recently.  These 12×16-40′ timbers were used in part of the underwater construction of the Sellwood Bridge in Portland, OR.  They were sunk in the Willamette River in 1924, salvaged a couple of years ago, and are as solid and straight as the day they were put there!  90 years of current has worn some of the wood away leaving about an inch of knots above the surface!

I have been working with wood for 30 years, so I have a pretty good grasp of what it takes to make a product work. Time spent with my wife, kids and grand kids fills up most of my off hours work, with a portion of that time spent working on sustainable small business initiatives in under-developed countries. I also enjoy traveling, the outdoors, fishing and hunting.
