The wood is actually called “London Plane” lumber. Planted about 1913, salvaged from the grounds of an allegedly haunted institutional home owned by the City of Vancouver.
The wood sawyer’s description: Kiln dried, milled, quarter sawed (except for some of the big wide slabs). Quartered to bring out the grain. The wood has a nice salmon color. Stunning grain, colour and figure. Some of the smaller pieces are just amazing. There is a nice collection of slabs for tables, good usable boards for projects and re-sawing and some unusual shapes good for artists and designers. Most is 2 1/4” and 3 1/4” thick.
