Hardwoods from Around the World
When Ed Pohle purchased Southern Lumber in the early 1930's, he transformed the company from selling timbers to selling fine lumber, including the introduction of fine hardwoods to the woodworkers and craftsmen of the Santa Clara Valley. Today, Southern Lumber stocks over 50 species of hardwoods, with most species available clean, surfaced and free of defects.
