At Pacific Western Lumber all of our raw material for milled D-logs is derived from “winter cut” Engelmann Spruce and Lodgepole Pine. They are stickered horizontally and vertically, paper-capped, and air dried for a minimum of 120 days. This allows us to gently reduce the moisture content to approximately 19%.
After proper seasoning, the cants are run through a sixteen knife planer to our standard double tongue & groove milled D-log pattern. Our 6×8 and 8×8 D-log’s have a 7 1/4′ stack height with a drip edge.
In addition to our standard milled D-log, we can also run round/round, flat/flat, and Appalachian style patterns.
