New Wood Porn
This page is constantly updated. Please keep checking back to view our newest arrivals
 


This page is for wood lovers only. All these photographs are from highly figured logs we have cut this past year. Most are of green, rough cut lumber as it came off the mill or as we were putting it on sticks to dry. There is nothing to compare with the feeling and excitement of opening up a highly figured log and seeing what is inside. We get to do this every year and I want to share some of these intense moments and very special figured lumber with all my loyal customers and all of you out there who are simply turned on by great wood. We chose to call it WOOD PORN which it certainly is to those of us that get the fever when looking at fantastic wood. Enjoy.

Peace,
Sam Talarico

Quartersawn Steamed London Plane Tree "Lacewood"
The lanes of Provence, France are lined with Sycamore trees due to Napoleon. When he was still ruling the country he ordered the trees to be planted so his men could always march in the shade.

After quartersawing these Planetree logs in Europe to get the lace figure I had them steamed to get the cherry or rosy color of the heart wood to also color the sapwood. It makes the rope curl more pronounced. This steaming protects the wood from getting sap stain and sticker stain. When bookmatching this lumber it creates a stunning herring bone pattern. These logs are the same tree we call Sycamore in America but I do not steam the lumber I cut here. This leaves a two tone wood whitch is also a very stunning effect when bookmatching.

I must say that Sycamore or Lacewood is my favorite wood of all. I have been cutting for over 40 years in the business and use it more in my personal projects than anything else in my WOOD PORN yard. If it was not for this wood THERE WOULD BE NO TALARICO HARDWOODS. Quarterd Sycamore is why I started Talarico Hardwoods.
