alaskan yellow hand split shakes

Resawn to 3/4″ thickness Hand Split Shakes

There are few projects more rewarding for us then when we have the opportunity to work on restoring a little piece of history. One great part about a lot of these jobs is that they often require us to match the original hand split shakes originally installed a century ago or more, which very often were much longer or thicker than we see on the market today. Here is a sneak preview photo of some 48″ blanks, soon to be resawn to 3/4″ thickness. They are destined for a roof in the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park in Skagway, Alaska. Look at how beautiful and straight that grain is! Stay tuned for more!!!
