Scott mills his own logs from the abundant  'horticultural salvage' along the wild Sonoma Coast. After the green logs are sliced into manageable slabs, the ends are sealed with wax and the slabs are carefully stacked for drying in the barn. After about a year, slabs are sawn into veneers and planed smooth. Scott then grades the veneers and composes the wood's grain for optimal strength and beauty. Separated by layers of a flexible resin, the veneers are formed into compound contours with Scott's homemade hydraulic press. Final shaping is done by hand with small drawknives, spokeshaves and planes.
