Known for quality Redwood Lumber since 1978, The Lumber Baron, Inc. has expanded its inventory to include a full line of Western Red Cedar, large selection of Reclaimed Lumber and we will soon be offering some incredible live edge slabs! Having developed special relationships with the best redwood mills around, we are still committed to offering our customers the highest quality, widest selection, and lowest prices on new redwood lumber in the Bay Area and beyond. We will continue our redwood offerings at our Albany location where we have been for the last 31 years. However, with a new 3.5 acre Richmond site in the works, complete with inside storage, an expanded milling operation, vast hardware selection, and jaw dropping show room, we feel now is the perfect time to incorporate new products lines in the same large selection, high quality fashion you have come to expect from us.
With an expected completion date of winter 2019, our new location on Harbour Way South in Richmond, will be the new home to our complete line of #2 clear, Old Growth Vertical Grain Western Red Cedar Lumber, our Reclaimed Lumber and Live Edge Slabs.
Our PEFC certified #2 and Btr Clear old growth Western Red Cedar is the best on the market. With it’s tight grain structure, natural resistance to decay, beautiful color and fragrance, cedar is becoming a very popular building material, highly sought after in the construction and design industry.
We hand select all of our reclaimed lumber for quality and beauty. The Lumber Baron has acquired some special historical lumber from locations such as the Bay Bridge, Hangar One on Moffett Field, and the U.S. Naval Base on Mare Island. Reclaimed materials are often used as exposed beams, shelving, mantels, flooring, siding, furniture, or accent walls. Check out our products page for a full list of materials and descriptions, both new and old.
Few know this but before our founder, Albert Slendebroek founded The Lumber Baron in 1978, he was The Earl of Burl, selling redwood burl tables cross country in a VW van. We are excited to take this company full circle and offer a number of different live edge slab options. From curly grain redwood, to curly maple and Monkey Pod, The Lumber Baron will be carrying a large assortment of slabs that would make incredible family heirloom furniture pieces. We’ll have width up to 53″ and lengths up to 20′, with the ability to surface, finish and install metal base legs.
Family owned and operated since 1978, The Lumber Baron would like to thank you for your continued support over the last 41 years. We realize this expansion would not be possible without you and hope the new lumber products and hardware selection will make your shopping experience with us more enjoyable.
